XTEAO - XTE Proposal Info & Abstracts
The XTEAO database table contains the official observing program for the
Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite. This list contains the targets
recommended by the review panels for the various Cycles of Guest Observer
(GO) proposals up to and including Cycle 11. Notice that not all entries in
this list will actually be observed, since it includes observations of
targets-of-opportunity (TOOs) which may never be triggered. Also note that
multiple pointings at a particular target are permitted.
The XTEAO database table was last updated on 24 February 2009.
