Today I came in again around four and showed Joe the rough draft of my powerpoint to make sure it ran well on his computer. Then I continued to work on it. Joel and Rudy gave me some good suggestions for a few of my slides but I still have to go through the whole thing with them. Rudy gave me a link to this website that makes a graph of the optimal viewing times of a star from a certain observatory. It says that it would be best to observe 2M1155-79 from Australia in March . . . but it could be possible as soon as December. Joel is hesitant to write a paper about this until we see if the star has Li absorption, which we will hopefully find out with the visible light spectrum.
