During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of GRB200411A, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on Apr 11. A scheduled observation of PKS 0620-52 was impacted by the replan and will be rescheduled in a future week.

Real-time procedures were executed during each ground contact to reset the DSN Outage Dead Man Load.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of NGC 300 X-1 coordinated with HST.
