When the ALON/ALAT significantly alters, the M-blk gets modified and also posted here.There has been no significant change in ALON/ALAT from the last posting.
However, we are shortly about to raise ALAT quite a bit, followed by about 3 weeks of drifting past the sun. During this time, the squints will be poor, as will the solar angles. The transponders may be off for much of this time because of the poor conditions and to conserve power. At the end of that time, ALON will be ~335 degs, we will be able to lower ALAT to 0, restore transponder usage, and have some steady improvement over current conditions. By about November 15th, if all goes well, we should be back to ALON/ALAT = 0/0/, where we can stay for ~3 months. More details will follow in a few days.
