MW 542

Mission Week 542 starts with a 10 minute "freeze" observation, during which an updated +50 degree rocking profile from the previous week is loaded. On day of year 292 from 00:44z until 01:54z there is a period of routine LAT calibration by charge injection, during which no science observations are conducted. Fixed +50 degree rocking and sky survey resumes at the end of the calibration run, and continues to the end of the mission week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 12-Oct-2018)

MW 543

Mission Week 543 starts with a continuation of the +50 degree only rock profile from MW 542. On day 298 (Oct 25) at 00:27 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which a ±50 rock profile is loaded. This executes a single rock from + to - 50 degrees starting near 01:09. Then, at 02:02 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which a rock profile of -50 degrees only is loaded. This profile continues for the remainder of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 18-Oct-2018)

MW 544

Mission Week 544 starts with a continuation of the -50 degree only rock profile from MW 543. On day 304 at 22:15 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which a +/-50 rock profile is loaded. This executes a single rock from -50 to +50 deg starting near DOY 305 at 02:57. Then, at 03:11 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which a modified sine rock profile with an amplitude of -56 degrees is loaded. This profile continues for the remainder of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 10-Oct-2018)

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.
