VLASS Epoch 2 start

by Mark Lacy last modified Jun 18, 2020

Observations for VLASS Epoch 2 are expected to begin during the week of June 23rd, after the completion of the antenna moves from C to B configuration, and some VLA hardware upgrades. A small set of observations will be carried out during this first week and run through the pipelines as a final validation check. The bulk of observations for VLASS campaign 2.1 (covering the same parts of the sky as the VLASS 1.1) will follow, starting in mid-July.
