Fruit of my Labor



So it's getting to be the end of the summer. It will most definitely be a bittersweet moment when I go home. I'm definitely excited to go home, but I am sad to leave my friends here in Tucson. I will also miss Tucson to an extent. Yes, it was hot, but they actually have whole foods grocery stores here. I've only been to Wal-Mart twice or something this summer. woo! It was also nice to be around so many astronomers. Everyone here is thinking astronomy and it's just cool. Well, I'm attaching a radial velocity curve. This is what I've been doing all summer. It basically plots all of the line centers of the spectral emission lines against the phase that the system is at when the spectrum was taken. This one has the sine curves for all of the lines that I dealt with this summer. It's nice and pretty! There are more of these, but they're the same idea. Hope you like it! :)
