Greenland Telescope

At the September 2012 workshop in Cambridge, MA, the question arose as to the joint visibility of M87 from the EHT sites. Here is the answer courtesy of my celestial track calculator (verify.c) and python, assuming a latitude of +72.60 for Summit Station.

Joint visibility of Sgr A*

While Sgr A* cannot be seen from GLT, here is the same plot for the rest of the EHT. sgra eht.png
