During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to incorporate an observation of 4U 1630-47, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on May 15. Loads for the replanned schedule will be uplinked on May 24. A scheduled observation of ZwCl1447.2+2619 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 4U 1630-47, which was accepted as a Target of Opportunity on May 15 and is coordinated with ATCA, an observation of Haro 1-10 which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Feb 19 and an observation of gx 5-1 coordinated with NuStar.
