Friday 30 June 2006 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to include an observation of 4U 0142+61 that was accepted as a one day turn-around Target Of Opportunity (TOO) on Jun 28. Loads were replanned and uplinked on Jun 29. An observation of RXCJ0334-5342 was impacted by the TOO and will be rescheduled in a later load.

Preparations are complete for the start of the summer eclipse season beginning on July 5. This 15th season consists of 6 medium eclipses and will end on July 18.

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes coordinated observations of NGC 1333 with the VLA and of GX 349+2 with both RXTE and the VLA.
