During the last week Chandra completed the observing schedule as planned. Chandra passed through the first three eclipses of the 2009 summer eclipse season on May 28, Jun 2 and 4 with nominal power and thermal performance.

A real-time procedure was executed on Jun 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 GRO J1655-40 coordinated with the Australia Telescope Compact Array.
