by Mark Lacy last modified Feb 28, 2020

The second epoch of VLASS observations will begin with the VLASS2.1 observing campaign starting at the end of May 2020. These observations will cover the same parts of the sky as the VLASS1.1 campaign. As before, raw visibility data will be available directly after the observations have been taken, followed by calibration products and Quick Look images on a 2-4 week timescale.

VLASS Epoch 2 delayed start

The VLA antenna reconfiguration from the C- to the B-configuration was originally scheduled for May 11-27. In view of the Infectious Disease Operating Status (IDOS) at NRAO, and the constraints imposed by the work, the VLA reconfiguration start has been postponed from May 11 to early June. This means that the start of VLASS Epoch 2 will be delayed until near the end of June.
