ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users,

Accepting the request for ASCA TOO observations of SMC X-3 by 
Robin Corbet et al.,  we have installed the observations on December 12. 
The flare up of the source was detected by RXTE after a long, 20 years
quiescent period (see IAUC No. # by Marshall et al.). To install this
TOO observations, the exposure time for  MS 1244.2+7114 (Priority-C,
PI: A. Furuzawa) and Cl. Link Region (Priority-C, PI: H. Tomida) were
reduced from 40 ksec to 30 ksec.

ASCA TOO observations of SMC X-3:
	PI:    	R. Corbet
	CoIs: 	J. Lochner, F. Marshall
	Japanese CoIs:  M. Ozaki,  TBD, (TBD)
The source was observed last night and Japanese CoIs are now performing
a quick analysis. The results, such as accurate position of the source will 
be informed soon.
