Sightings - Star Struck

PHOTO COURTESY OF JOHN DOWNEY

The telescope is the Sloan Digital Sky Survey 2.5m telescope at Apache Point Observatory in southern New Mexico. We do a complete tear down every summer for maintenance, it was delayed this summer due to COVID shutdowns earlier in the year. Normally the primary mirror is buried behind a lot of structure unique to this telescope, so the summer shutdown is pretty much the only time to get a good look at it. As luck would have it, a rare celestial object appeared recently in the mirror. Lo and behold.
