Palomar Owl

Last month, just before sunrise after the first successful laser test for the 60-inch telescope's Robo-AO system, Christoph Baranec (Robo-AO's P.I.) spied and photographed this owl:

We do not know if this is the same owl who had been perching on our all-sky camera, but we are checking into it. Alas, a technical issue has delayed out all-sky camera from going public just yet.

We will let you know as soon as the all-sky camera is up for public display. In the meantime, enjoy this full-resolution look at the owl.

By the way, Christoph also took some great shots of the Robo-AO laser in action. Look for those to be posted here soon.
