3/15 Comet Pan Starrs from Mojave National Preserve (Kelso Dunes)

Moved to Mojave National Preserve (Kelso Dunes) on March 14, after fixing equipment. (RA drive on mount damaged on March 13 Los Olivos) Met a PhD student from Germany, who attended the SPIE conference in San Diego (he was sightseeing afterwards, headed towards Las Vegas). Unfortunately, clouded out due to heavy clouds on western horizon.

March 15 didn't look good, lots of clouds during day. More clouds on western horizon. Luckily, there was clear sky near twilight.

Weakening high pressure, means clouds from NorthWest. Have to move east, & south. During day, had a fantastic day hiking up to summit of Kelso Dunes. Got some interesting photos (see above link).
