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

Chandra passed through the fourth, fifth, and sixth eclipses of the season on Apr 22, Apr 25, and Apr 27 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of M87 coordinated with NuSTAR, an observation of GRB220219B, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Apr 19, an observation of SwiftJ1858.6-0814, which is a follow-up to a Target of Opportunity which was accepted on May 4, 2020, and an observation of GRB220412B, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Apr 27.
