Filed under , ,

* Note: The corrective action for thermal configuration monitoring is currently
disabled – i.e. there will be no automatic thermal reconfiguration. However,
we are in continuous contact, and anomalous temperatures would be clearly
flagged to the FOT.

* The NASA 36.192 (MXUVI Woods/Hassler) launch on Friday was successful.

* HESSI first ligth is expected this evening.

* Solar science seminar Wed Feb 13, 2002, 3:30 PM, in SOHO EAF (room G-10)
Peter Gallagher (Emergent) on “The Science of Flare Forecasting”

Spacecraft Status: SVM Nominal
MDI, CELIAS have yet to resume normal operations

Spacecraft Anomalies:
036/2231 Experiment LCL status toggling. Appears to be
related to the PRTU reconfiguration, and also
appears to be settling with time. Investigation
and results pending.
040/0252 Single DMA failure over 1 format.

Accomplished Activities:
DOY 040: VIRGO, MDI background queue commanding
DOY 041: VIRGO, SWAN (x4), MDI background queue commanding
CDS recovery compelted (FOT activities)

Planned Activities: VIRGO, SWAN, CELIAS Recovery Activities, New tracking star, mag = 6.6

Upcoming Operations: None

Ground Anomalies: None over the weekend.

02/08 DOY 039 – 02/11 DOY 042

EIT daily On-Line Solar Status and observations:

LASCO daily On-Line Solar Status and observations:

Web Page for Planning:

CDS: Nominal. Supporting campaign #6846 (MXUVI Rocket) with full sun,
full spectrum observation (3 days late, but still useful). Catching
up with other missed studies (e.g. polar reversal monitoring).

UVCS: Nominal. Checkout and recovery today and occulter calibration
overnight, assuming everything goes well. Plans for tomorrow TBD.

LASCO: Nominal. C2/C3 synoptics.

EIT: Nominal. 195 Angstrom CME watch and synoptics.

MDI: Nominal, but not observing. More work is needed before they restart
structure. Hope to start taking doppler observations some time during
the week. Status of keep-alive memory yet TBD.

TRACE: Nominal. Flares, sunspot, active region tracking study.

CEPAC: Will be powered on tomorrow morning between 15:00-16:00 UT.

SUMER: Off. Plans to power on in April.
