looking good

1:15 PM. An message was issued from the Clear Sky Alarm Clock for the BGO in Halifax. The Clear Sky Chart showed lots of blue. Again! Huh!

5:00 PM. BGO tweeted it was "waiting for the sky to clear..." A few moments later, it reported the sky as "clear and dark." All right. The 'bot was starting up the observatory! w00t.

5:35 PM. BGO said it was beginning the programmed observations. Fifteen minutes later, the robotic telescope shot M33 for Lane. I was happy to see we were up and running.

I was excited. And stinging perhaps from last night where the sky conditions looked rather good but the dome remained shut, frozen due to ice.
