It’s 2pm local time, and I’ve just managed to drag myself out of bed ready for our second night’s observing. During the day Kitt Peak is essentially a tourist destination; I just popped into the visitor’s centre to buy some water and found the third tour of the day getting briefed before setting off up the mountain. There’s also a public sky viewing program in the evenings, and they even rent out some of the smaller (but still substantial) telescopes on the mountain to anyone who wants to use them. It’s still sunny, and it won’t be long before we have to start preparing the telescope, but for now more prosaic thoughts dominate. Breakfast time…

P.S. If you want to follow our exploits in more detail this evening, we’ll be updating the newly established WIYN twitter feed.
