Chandra in Safe mode - stay tuned for campaign updates

Chandra went into safe mode today. Depending on the cause and on how long Chandra will be down, Dr. Mukai's campaign may be impacted. Since we don't know how long (or short) the interruption may be, please continue to take a few snapshots of KQ Mon during the observing window this week and through the end of October.

We'll keep you posted of further developments via this forum.

Many thanks, and Good observing,

Elizabeth

KQ Mon observation w/Chandra postponed

Chandra is operational again, but the observation of KQ Mon has been postponed to a future date to be determined.  So for now, an occasional snapshot of KQ Mon is all that is needed, as for the other stars in the campaign (AN 652).

Many thanks, and Good observing,

Elizabeth
