Astronomy Report
02/20/2014
Corentin Liber

Sky conditions: clear

Winds: Strong

Time of observation: 22:00 - 22:30

Summary:
As the sky was really clear, we tried to use the Musk Observatory but the wind was really strong.  
We feared for the security of the equipment so we decided to try to image the supernova in M99 which
was located East, the most safe direction for the wind.
We only took one picture and the result is not of good quality.  The supernova is not visible on
this one and the galaxy in quite faint.  We need a longer exposition but the weather didn't allowed
it, the wind was still going up.  We decided to call it a night after that.
