All is well at our NOT telescope

The volcanic eruption does not (yet) cause disruption.

Thomas Augusteijn reports that there is no present danger at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory where the NOT is situated in the northern part of La Palma. Work is continuing and as long as the wind is not southerly there is no problem. But the night view of the volcano 16 kilometers away is quite astonishing.
