FOXSI launched right on time, at 12:11 MST.  During the observation time we observed at least a few solar sources, most likely active regions (as expected).  We also had minutes of observation on the quiet Sun to look for nanoflares.  The observation was tense, but fruitful!  Many thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this a success!
