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

Chandra passed through eclipses 4, 5 and 6 of the 2002 Spring season on Feb 8, 11 and 13 with nominal power and thermal performance.

A routine real-time procedure was completed on Feb 11 to update the on-board the Ephemeris.

The observing schedule for next week is shown below and includes an observation of Sgr A* coordinated with the Very Large Array and the last in a series of long observations of the Hubble Deep Field North that total 2 million seconds.
