Night Log 2015-07-05

SA: Marissa
SO: Thea


Started off the night with a successful multi-wavelength campaign to simultaneously observe a BH with BVIT on SALT and two X-ray satellites (SWIFT & INTEGRAL). Fortunately the weather prediction was wrong and we had a beautiful, clear night until high humidity caught up with us at 4:30 a.m.

Data taken for:

2014-1-MLT-003 P0 BVIT (Observe the accretion disc as a white dwarf, neutron star or black hole gobbles up a companion.)
2015-1-SCI-018 P0 HRS (Accretion in Young Binary Star Systems)
2015-1-SCI-049 P0 HRS (Phase-up 26-year-old binary orbital solution for photometric monitoring campaign)
2015-1-SCI-070 P1 HRS (x2) (High resolution spectroscopic abundance measurements of RGBs in NGC 6681 (M70))
2015-1-SCI-058 P1 SCAM (Studying the long-term behavior of classical novae after their eruptions)
2015-1-SCI-055 P2 RSS (x2) (Spectroscopic classification of candidate magnetic cataclysmic variables in the CRTS)
2015-1-MLT-002 P3 RSS (Observations of supernovae, near and far.)
2015-1-SCI-012 P3 RSS (x3) (Searching for high redshift quasars for the MeerKAT Absorption Line Survey (MALS))
