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

Chandra passed through the fourth, fifth, and sixth (and final) eclipses of the season on Jan 16, 19, and 21 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

The schedule of targets for the next two weeks is shown below and includes an observation of SN2016G, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Jan 11, observations of 2MASS J07221747+0851566, 2MASS J10252645+0512391, SDSS J0950+0246, and SDSSJ112104.93+432141.6 coordinated with ground-based observatories, an observation of the Crab coordinated with HST, and an observation of ASASSN-14li coordinated with the VLA.
