WHT prepare for action.

Quick update from Mark and I here at the William Herschel Telescope. It’s three hours till sundown and we are already setup, which means we are ready to go as soon as night falls. We are keeping our eyes on the clouds, you can see the satellite pictures here (click on the weather image and scroll down. La Palma is the north-westerly island of the cluster of 5) and hoping that they don’t cause too many problems.

Greatly looking forward to getting some good supernovae observing in. Look out for more updates through the night.

Good fortune supernovae hunters!
