Yesterday morning at the meeting, Bob had us sit in a dark room for ten minutes. Then he made us cover one eye and walk around the building and back to the same room. The lights were then turned off again and we could then open the eye that we held closed. We could see out of the eye that had been closed but not the eye that was open. This is because the pupal dilated in the eye that was closed in order to let more light in. The opposite eye's pupal was not dilated because we had been walking in a lighted area so the pupal didn't needed to be as big for it to absorb light.

I was downloading more images from the HST and then Jake fixed the ellipse program. So now I can run the fits files through ellipse and get the A4 and B4 data.
