During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to include an observation of SGR 1900+14 that was accepted as a 3 day turn-around Target Of Opportunity (TOO) on Mar 26. Loads were replanned and uplinked on Mar 28. An observation of NGC 1672 was impacted by the TOO and observations of SDSS J2123-0050 and A2125 were added the schedule as a result of the re-plan.

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes a calibration observation of PKS2155-304.
