BOSS in New Mexico

The SDSS-III BOSS is holding their collaboration meeting in Cloudcroft, New Mexico at the moment. Cloudcroft is the nearest town to the Apache Point Observatory, where the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) telescope is located. The meeting has nearly 100 scientists, from across the world, and each evening these scientists have the opportunity to visit APO and see the SDSS telescope in action. For many of them, it is the first time they have seen the telescope that is collecting their data.

Below are two photos from the first day of the meeting, showing BOSS astronomers arriving at the Lodge in Cloudcroft (where the meeting is being held), and then a photo showing them hard at work. Photos taken by John Parejko.
