Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 10 May 2019 9.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was executed on May 4 to perform a full-frame dark current readout of the Aspect Camera Assembly CCD.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of Eta Carinae coordinated with HST, an observation of MAXI J1820+070, which is a follow-up to a Target of Opportunity accepted on Apr 18 and is coordinated with VLA, and an observation of DES J0405-3308, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Nov 30, 2018.
