AMBER to see star light tonight? (20/03/2004)
Saturday 20 March 2004

AMBER is scheduled to look at stellar light tonight, Saturday 20 March 2004. A first attempt was performed on 17 March evening with very partial results. Was the VLTI alignment nominal? To check this hypothesis, the ESO VLTI team has been working since that day to ensure that beams correctly aligned in the focal laboratory.

During this period, the AMBER team went on with stability tests (see description).
