DES Observing

September 27, 2018
Blanco Telescope, CTIO, CTIO/AURA, La Serena, CL

I observed on the Blanco 4m telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Vicuña, Chile. I was observing for the Dark Energy Survey for Y6 observations, and I was there for almost a week, although only observing September 27-30.

Unfortunately, we were completely clouded out for two of the four nights, and we had bright time when it was clear, but it was a great experience and I got to see the Milky Way!
