Observing @ NTT

This week I traveled to the New Technology Telescope or the NTT located in La Silla a mountain range north of Santiago near the Atacama desert. We are here to continue our investigation into the fascinating field of brown dwarf variability. This is where we study the atmospheres of these Jupiter-sized (much more massive though) objects in the near-infrared wavelengths to look for evolving cloud features to try and get a glimpse into their inner workings. Praying for good weather :).
