Today was a nearly zero-research day, with me occupied with all the administrative stuff that I have been ignoring. In a surprise I ran into Nitya Kallivayalil (Yale) at Think where she showed me a new, incredibly high signal-to-noise measurement of the proper motion of the LMC. With the precision she showed, she ought to be able to measure the transverse rotation too.

  1. That's cool! We'll need even more simulated MW systems to make use of it though. Sigh - life is so much easier in the high noise-to-signal regime
