SWAP and LYRA data gaps expected on May 6, 2018

UPDATE: the scheduled maintenance of PROBA2 took longer than foreseen and the solar instruments were not yet turned on. We now expect that the data gaps for SWAP and LYRA will continue until May 7.

The SWAP and LYRA instruments will be turned off during the morning of May 6, 2018 due to a scheduled maintenance of the PROBA2 spacecraft.

LYRA and SWAP will stop acquiring data around 23:40 UT on May 5 and, if all goes as planned, will resume their normal operations at 06:30 UT on May 6.
