CALIBRATIONS:

- 19:30UT - we have control of the telescope! However, the sky is 100% covered by clouds.... Rob is optimistic though.

- 19:30UT - 2x PESSTO_bias & 1x PESSTO_calib

- 21:00UT - SOFI_specflat, SOFI_FlatJHK (why not!)

PRE-OBSERVATIONS:

- 23:30UT - Sunset: A-maz-ing! A green flash and highly ridiculous colours.

- That's primarily as we're clouded out.

- Conditions: WE'RE CLOSED DUE TO CLOUD COVER

- 00:00UT - Still closed and it looks no better - at least another 2 hours

- 04:00UT - SOFI_specarc (why not)

- 06:00UT - Outside looks promising, so we're going to open!

SCIENCE-OBSERVATIONS:

- 06:25UT - SPECTROSCOPIC STANDARD: L745a: Seeing 1.4", Airmass 1.08

- 08:35UT - LSQ14ggr: Classification. The sun is rapidly coming up and there is no sign of it in the acquisition image, so aborted.
