SWAP and LYRA data gaps

On Friday December 8, an unexpected reboot of the PROBA2 spacecraft occurred. This caused the LYRA and SWAP instruments to turn off, leading to a gap in their data flow.

The LYRA operations were restarted successfully on the next day and the instrument has been delivering measurements since 18:53 UT on December 9.
