Alert Notice 741: Southern T Tau Stars campaign in support of HST and TESS observations

Note:  HST will be observing Sz 76 again on August 8  from 11:27:38 through 18:56:12 UT. Please add this target to your observing queue if practical. Dr. Walter remarks that there will be no TESS data, so frequent (at least nightly) BVRI observations will be helpful for setting the context for the HST spectra.  -  Elizabeth O. Waagen, August 2, 2021


The HST observations of NSV 20468 (Sz 130) and SSTc2d J160000.6-422158 have been scheduled as follows:
