MW 585

Mission week 585 starts with a continuation of the symmetric +/- 50 degree from the previous week. At 00:34 on day of year 227 (August 15) there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which an updated symmetric rocking profile is loaded. This profile continues until the end of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 24-Jul-2019)

MW 586

Mission week 586 starts with a continuation of the symmetric +/- 50 degree from the previous week. At 00:50 on day of year 234 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which an updated symmetric rocking profile is loaded. Then, on DOY 237 at 06:41 a second freeze observation occurs, during which a +50/-60 degree profile is loaded to accommodate the rising beta angle. Finally, just before the end of the week on DOY 240 at 17:05 a +50 degree modified sine profile is loaded, which continues until the end of the mission week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 16-Aug-2019)

MW 587

Mission week 587 starts with a short continuation of the +50 degree modified sine rocking profile from the previous mission week. The profile is updated and the updated profile continues until the end of the mission week. (updated: 07-Aug-2019)

This utility allows you to view Fermi's observing timeline. It defaults to the current AO cycle, but you can also view past AO cycles, along with timelines showing a summary of the Targets of Opportunity (TOO), Automatic Re-pointing Requests (ARR), other pointed observations, and non-science periods. Explanations of the columns can be found in the glossary.

Pointed observations (like ToOs and ARRs) that interrupted the schedule are indicated in bold. Preliminary scheduled observations are indicated in italics.

Note: Updates to this page can be delayed by unexpected timeline changes. For information about on-going Target-of-Opportunity observations, check the Approved TOOs page.
