ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users;

A TYPHOON HIT KYUUSHU ISLAND ON JULY 17, and only the first two passes 
were operated on the day. Because of serious damage of electric power line 
to Kagoshima space center, operations on July 18 were cancelled and 
the regular operation of ASCA has started from the first pass of July 19.

Due to this typhoon hit to KSC, we estimate that about 45 % of scheduled 
exposure time was lost for 3C273 (coordinated calibration target) and 
about 35 % of that for NGC4941 (PI: Y. Terashima, AGN, Priority-2) was lost.

The schedule for August 20-30 is as follow;
