Sunday Photo: the sun behind the LST

The sun behind the LST mirror

I needed one last photo of the MAGIC telescope for my guide book update, so I went up to the observatory just before sunset. I got what I needed for the book, and I also saw the setting sun sparkling between the segments of the Large-Sized Telescope mirror.

I really hope that I’m going to finish writing the book update next week. That’ll still leave layout, proof-reading, corrections and printing, but I’m nearly there.
