ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users,

Attached you will find an ASCA observation schedule for the period of
May 9 to 22.

During the time when we had the "ASCA Cherry Blossom Workshop",
ASCA itself transferred into a Safe-Hold mode on April 2. This is not 
due to a Gyro trouble but due to mistakes in the attitude control command 
sequence. It took three days to return ASCA to a regular observation
mode and observations were restarted on April 5 at 8:00 (UT). Just after
the time we have installed a 40 ksec TOO observation of GRB970402,
and after then we have started observations along the schedule after G7.7-3.7
(PI: J. Hughes). Due to this SH-mode event, the observations of Galactic 
Ridge 9 #1-10 (PI: S. Yamauchi) and NGC 6558 (PI: H. Negoro) were
cancelled and carried over.
