The STATUS field contains the status of the observation or the target accepted for NuSTAR observation(s). Note that, for unobserved targets (i.e., those entries with status values of either accepted or scheduled) the exposure time in the Exposure_A field is the planned exposure time multiplied by -1. Also note that the ObsID for accepted targets is only the first 8 digits of the full ObsID designation that will be assigned when the target is scheduled for an observation.|
The possible values for the status and their meanings are as follows:
accepted The target has been accepted and will be scheduled for a NuSTAR observation.
scheduled The target has been scheduled for an observation.
observed The target has been observed with the associated ObsID, but not all planned observations have been completed.
processed The ObsID has been transferred to the archive and is available for encrypted download by the Principal Investigator of the proposed observation.
archived The ObsID is now publicly available in the archive.
