Gemini-S closed due to bad weather from August 6th

, Updated
Large parts of Chile, including the town of La Serena and the surrounding mountains suffered from bad weather the last few days. Over the weekend Aug 8-9 about a meter of snow fell on Cerro Pachon. Once the road is cleared and the day crew can reach the summit again the appropriate measures will be taken to get the telescope back into operation as soon as possible. This will probably take a few days.
