Visitor from above.

This Unexpected Flying Organism visited the observatory last evening while I was setting up.  It was quite startling as I was looking at the cloud cover on the All Sky Cam when the  close encounter occurred.  As soon as I opened the door to get a better view, the visitor left without attempting further contact.

The All Sky Cam is proving to be very useful.  It is much more sensitive than normal vision both in daylight ( the haze here can make the sky very bright ) and at night.  For example, last night,after the visitation, I was taking some alignment images.  At one point the tracking got very erratic.  A glimpse outside showed nothing, but the camera view showed a small band of very thin cloud had just passed.
