Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 5 January 2018 9.00am EST

During the last week Chandra completed the observing schedule as planned.

Chandra passed through the third, fourth, and fifth eclipses of the season on Dec 30, Jan 2, and Jan 4 with nominal power and thermal performance. A real-time procedure was executed on Jan 3 to dump and clear the EPS glitch counters. Another real-time procedure was executed on Jan 3 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of DM Tau, which is a follow-up to a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity which was accepted on Nov 22, an observation of GM Aur coordinated with HST and VLA, and an observation of LAMOST J061149+22493, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Dec 22.
