GCN Circular 34709
K. L. Page (U Leicester) and D. M. Palmer (LANL) report on behalf of the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory Team: Swift continues to have star tracker loss-of-lock problems, possibly due to current solar activity. For the near future, please verify that the Swift GCN notices do not have the comment COMMENTS: This trigger occured while the StarTracker had lost lock, so it is possibly bogus. Also, the loss-of-lock triggers will tend to be reported as having positions within a few degrees of the actual sources. BAT currently sees the following sources, so notices near these locations should be treated as suspect ra_deg, dec_deg name 40.919 61.432 Swift02436 83.633 22.014 Crab 170.300 -60.617 Cen_X-3 186.650 -62.767 GX_301-2 244.980 -15.640 Sco_X-1 255.980 -37.844 4U_1700-377 261.940 -16.212 SWIFTJ1727-1613 263.000 -33.833 GX_354-0 299.590 35.202 Cyg_X-1 308.110 40.958 Cyg_X-3 Further retraction notices will not be published until the Loss-of-Lock problem is cleared.
