ROSAT Guest Observer Facility

How can I find out what's available in the GSFC ROSAT archive?

There are three ways of locating available data files.

  • via W3BROWSE

  • Download an ASCII list of public data via anonymous FTP:

    download the appropriate file (below):

        % ftp      
        user: anonymous
        password: you@     
        ftp> cd rosat/doc/archive  
        ftp> dir
        ftp> ascii
        ftp> get rosarchive_<yymmdd>.pos (sorted by RA, Dec)
        ftp> get rosarchive_<yymmdd>.seq (sorted by sequence no.)
        ftp> quit
    These files are updated as new data become available.
