Approved VLA program led by Bin Chen targeting flares. The program runs in the 4-8 GHz C band and has a 300"-600" field of view (18 hours in total). Can be triggered when the Sun shows abundant flare activities.
Director's Discretionary Time proposal led by Kevin Reardon. Observations on October 18, October 25, and November 4 (baseline, flexible if there are weather issues and/or better coordination times).
Director's Discretionary Time proposal led by Alexandra Tritschler (w/ Thomas Schad, Daniel Müller, Krzysztof Barczynski, Chris Nelson, Miho Janvier) for the long-term AR SOOP. The program involves Cryo-NIRSP when target is at the limb, then VBI + ViSP when target is on disk. ~4 days of observations.
Details of the observations are as follows:
10/18/2022 Off-Limb Observations - Experiment EID_1_122 - Cryo-NIRSP only
This was a Test run of the Observing Programs, but a whole data set has been obtained.
Multiple executions of the observing programs of Experiment EID_1_122.
OP1: R1.08 with slit parallel to limb ; SP intensity scans in 1074 and 1079, CI 1083 ; 400 step raster
OP2: R1.08 with slit parallel to limb ; SP polarimetric scans 1074, CI 1083 ; 100 step raster

Approved THEMIS program led by Miho Janvier for the long-term AR SOOP. The program involves spectro-polarimetry + broadband imaging of the target(s). Running from Oct. 20th till Nov. 10th.
Approved GST TAC program led by Miho Janvier for the long-term AR SOOP. The program involves Broad-band Filter Imager, Visible Imaging Spectrometer and the Near-infrared Imaging Spectro-polarimeter
Mauna Loa Solar Observatory (UCoMP):
Mauna Loa Solar Observatory Upgraded Coronal Multi-Channel (UCoMP) instrument and K-Cor white light coronagraph provide synoptic observations. The K-Cor white light coronagraph acquires white light polarization brightness images of the solar corona from 1.05 to 3 solar radii at 15 sec cadence. Point of contact: Joan Burkepile
