Summary:
We continued our spectroscopy experiment last night, the stars didn’t
work very well and the clouds became stronger. So we stopped, and woke
up at 5:30 PM to test it on the Moon. It worked better.
I didn’t have the time today to work on the data.


Objects viewed:
-Capella, Arcturus, Moon

Problems encountered:
We didn’t capture enough light from the stars.
There was not enough power to completely close the dome again this
morning! So we went back to close it later.
