Subject: XMM pointing direction
Full_Name: Jaewoong Jung
Submission from: (NULL) (193.147.152.102)


Dear XMM helpdesk team,

I'm doing some background (SWCX) research of XMM image, and doing statistical
work on the previous XMM observations.
I got XMM pointing direction (where the satellite is looking, in units of GSE)
list of 2000-2012, because SWCX is major coming from magnetosheath, and we need
to know when the satellite is looking through it. And I found that from 2012
pointing direction trend became very different. Before 2012, pointing direction
changes very rapidly, but in 2012 the look direction is continuously changing
slowly. I'll attach the plot on email after submitting this. 
I think, there might be a possibility that the data is wrong. I didn't generate
it myself, but got it from someone and I didn't check it myself. But before
doing the real job, I just wanted to make sure. Did the mission planning for XMM
has moved onto longer observation campaigns since 2012?

Regards,
Jaewoong

This is the plot I mentioned in the request.
Only x component of the pointing direction is plotted, but it's similar for
other components.
You can see the difference between 2011 and 2012. 2000-2010 were all
similar to 2011.

Dear Jaewoong,

No, there was no change in the observations mode for XMM, please
ask your colleague how did she/he obtain this px parameter.

Best regards,

Nora
