Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 27 October 2017 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of IGR J16597-3904, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Oct 23, and observations of GALEX J101007.7+0331 and NGC 5297. Loads for the replanned schedule were uplinked on Oct 24. A scheduled observation of Tycho's Supernova Remnant was impacted by the replan and will be rescheduled in a future week.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of XTE J1810-197 coordinated with XTE, an observation of FRB121102 coordinated with GBT, and an observation of AT 2017gbl, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Oct 17.
