Due to operational constraints data may not be available for these plots at given times, therefore the automatic generation of this plotted material can and does only include available data.

The background radiation detected by the on-board radiation monitor is greatly affected by the location of the XMM-Newton spacecraft and its distance from earth. Please check here for the current location of XMM-Newton.
