The fog collector turned on at ~12am and turned off at 9:58 am. ~10mL of sample was collected. The collector was cleaned with soap and water and a blank was taken.

We noticed that the fog collector optical sensor was having trouble turning on, so we put Anti-Fog liquid on the metal trough to see if the water collected from the passive collector would roll off better.
