[5.06] Planning Your Spitzer Cycle 2 Observations

S.D. Van Dyk (Spitzer Science Center), Spitzer Observer Support Team

The Spitzer Space Telescope (formerly SIRTF) was launched in August 2003. It has three science instruments: (1) the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC), which images at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8 microns; (2) the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) with resolutions of ~60 and ~600, from ~5 to ~40 microns; and (3) the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS), which images at 24, 70, and 160 microns. Early observations produced ~80 papers spanning the science of high-z objects through asteroids in a special issue of the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series. The Cycle 1 Guest Observer programs are currently being executed. The next call for proposals for Spitzer was issued on 2004 November 1, with proposals due on 2005 February 12. Observers will need to use Spot (the Spitzer Planning Observations Tool) to prepare observations and submit proposals. This poster provides an overview of observation planning for your Spitzer observations and proposal submission. For more information, find Spitzer on the web at http://ssc.spitzer.caltech.edu/ .
