Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 28 July 2017 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of GRB170714A, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Jul 24. In part, this observation replaced the Target of Opportunity Aql X-1 which had faded below its trigger criterion. In addition, MACSJ2243.3-0935 was added to the schedule to fill the remaining time vacated by the Aql X-1 observation.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of NGC1313 X-1, which are coordinated with NuStar, observations of ASASSN-14i, which are coordinated with the VLA, and an observation of Jupiter which is a follow-up to a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity which was accepted on Jan 26.
