MW 533

Mission Week 533 starts with a 10 minute "freeze" observation on day of year 228 during which time an updated survey profile for this week is loaded. This profile is +50 degree rocking only. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 25-Jul-2018)

MW 534

Mission Week 534 starts with a continuation of the +50 degree only rock profile from MW 533. On day 236 (Aug 24) at 02:20 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which a +/-50 rock profile is loaded. This executes a single rock from + to - 50 degrees near 03:38. Then, at 04:00 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which a modified sine profile is loaded. This has an amplitude of +56 degrees during orbit "day" and a fixed rock of -50 degrees during orbit "night". This profile continues for the remainder of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 01-Aug-2018)

MW 535

Mission Week 535 starts with a continuation of the +56 degree modified sine profile from the end of the previous mission week. On DOY 242 (Aug 30) at 01:05 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which another profile is loaded to account for the increase in the beta angle. This new profile has an amplitude of +60 degrees during orbit "day" and a fixed rock of -50 degrees during orbit "night". This profile continues for the remainder of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north. (updated: 08-Aug-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.
