With clear skies and only little wind during March and the first half of April the weather was excellent for SETI searches. The 2.5 to 3 hour observing sessions logged an average of 20 stars a night. Added to that, the instruments all performed well and the recent photometer improvements have exceeded expectations. My month’s successes were even topped off with fixing a nagging problem with the car. What’s not to like?
