Summary

These observations have been performed from the control room of LBT at the summit by Ester Marini and Adriana Gargiulo. At sunset there are clouds passing through the sky, but there are some spots of clear sky. Humidity is ~75%, the wind is below the limit. We open at 2:14 UT and we start with LUCI, then we switch to MODS at 3:54UT and lastly we switch to PEPSI at 9:31UT.

Summary

These observations have been performed from the control room of LBT at the summit by Ester Marini and Adriana Gargiulo. At sunset there are some thin clouds scattered across the sky but conditions seems to be improving. Humidity and wind are below the limit. We open at 1:56UT. At 3:10UT the sky is 50% covered by clouds, we switch to PEPSI. At 04:07UT the sky is completely covered by thick clouds, we close. At 5:06UT we reopen but no GS was found due to clouds. We call the night at 12:56UT.
