2015A Day 40: This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)

Home is where I want to be… Guess we must be having fun… Feet on the ground, head in the sky… Cover up and say goodnight… Hiyo… I got plenty of time…
I guess that this must be the place…

And the run is almost over… I think we’re going to make it! We’ve had some good guest bloggers lately so I’m going to be posting some new and old pics, since I haven’t blogged in a week.

Also, I’d like to shout out a happy 45th anniversary to my parents today! <3 Here we go: Cerro Manqui delivered a gorgeous night to us tonight -- like a gift to Jared and me for these 6 weeks of hard work, we got some really good observations on some of the MagAO Team's top targets: [caption id="attachment_7612" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Cerro Manqui delivered for us tonight — other than a few weird waves of seeings, probably caused by the low winds — the slowest turbulence we’ve ever seen making its way across the shell — no winds, no clouds, and amazing seeing for almost the whole night![/caption]

Jared made a video of the loop closed and then open again, also showing the visible-light PSF:

Laird taught Jordan how to close the loop on a pyramid wavefront sensor and adaptive secondary mirror, and I refreshed Kim on running Clio:

The control room tonight — Laird was teaching Jerdun how to run AO, and Kim was running Clio

But just a few days ago, Kim was closing the loop, and Amanda and Atom were running Clio:

It was a bit cloudy during some of Amanda’s time, so she suggested we lock on Saturn’s moon Rhea — here we are with the rings on Clio! See more of the planetary science we did in her post.

Saturn! Amanda decided to try locking on the moon Rhea which you can see centered in the guider here. And were able to see the rings on Clio! A fun target!

Larid brought some treats:

Laird brought me chocolate — thanks!

I saw Vizzy a couple days ago:

Home is where I want to be… Feet on the ground, head in the sky… Cover up and say goodnight… Hiyo… I got plenty of time…

Home – is where I want to be / I guess I must be having fun …blogging

Song of the day:
Music Video:



Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb — born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It’s ok I know nothing’s wrong… nothing

Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo You got light in your eyes
And you’re standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money, always for love
Cover up and say goodnight… say goodnight

Home is where I want to be
But I guess I’m already there
I come home — she lifted up her wings
I guess that this must be the place
I can’t tell one from another
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time
Before we were born
If someone asks, this is where I’ll be… where I’ll be

Hi yo We drift in and out
Hi yo Sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I’m just an animal looking for a home and,
Share the same space for a minute or two

And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I’m dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head, I got
Ah ooh
