Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 24 May 2019 9.00am EDT

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

A real-time procedure was executed on May 20 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 Jupiter, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Mar 12 and is coordinated with Juno, an observation of GX13+1 coordinated with VLA, and an observation of MAXIJ1820+070, which is a follow-up to a Target of Opportunity accepted on Apr 18 and is coordinated with VLA.
