After staring at the humidity going up and down and up and down all night and, by 5:15am, finally deciding that, truly, we should give up and go to sleep, the fog dropped and here we are, with 45 minutes to go before sunrise, opening the telescope. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, mere mortals would have given up and gone to sleep long ago, but even a sliver of telscope time at the Keck telescope can be worth staying up all night. So we did. Our reward, which we are now looking at, is Titan. We're looking to see if there are any big methane storms raging across the surface at the moment. Stay tuned!
