Notes from the Editor
=====================
   by Jennifer Cullison, EUVE Project Specialist

   Welcome to the electronic newsletter for NASA's Extreme Ultraviolet
Explorer (EUVE) satellite, compiled and published quarterly by the
Center for EUV Astrophysics (CEA) at the University of California,
Berkeley (UCB).  

   This is the first issue of the newsletter since December 1997.  
Though it has been the interest of the EUVE project to 
continue the newsletter as events warrant (e.g., on a quarterly basis),
the absence of newsletter publications over the last 19 months is by no means 
an indication of a lack of interesting science and innovation coming out 
of the project. Though the project continues to operate despite shrinking 
mission staffing and budgetary resources, we are now redoubling our efforts 
to distribute the newsletter on a quarterly basis.

   The contents of this issue of the EUVE electronic newsletter are as follows:

 1. EUVE Satellite Mission Operations News
    1.1 Operations Highlights
    1.2 Observation Log
    1.3 Lessons Learned
 2. EUVE Science News
    2.1 Science Highlights
    2.2 Upcoming AO for EUVE Cycle 8
    2.3 EUVE Science Advisory Board FY98 Report
    2.4 EUVE Right Angle Program (RAP) Report
    2.5 Recent EUVE Director's Discretionary Time (DDT) Observations
    2.6 Recent EUVE Calibration Observations
    2.7 Recent EUVE Data Releases
    2.8 EUVE Publications: April - July 1999

	- AR UMA - via EUVE 
April:	EUVE Finds Evidence for Stratification of N Abundance in White Dwarf 
	RE_J1032+532

Details and previous months' highlights are available at:
http://www.cea.berkeley.edu/~science/html/Resources_high.html

2.2 Upcoming AO for EUVE Cycle 8
--------------------------------

The EUVE Science Advisory Board and the EUVE Project Director have agreed to 
release an eighth announcement of opportunity for EUVE Guest Observers
in August 1999.  EUVE observers will be informed as soon as details are 
set.  The general public will be informed via the Bulletin of the American
Astronomical Society electronic announcements and the EUVE website.

2.3 EUVE Science Advisory Board FY98 report	
-------------------------------------------

The EUVE Science Advisory Board submitted its FY98 report to NASA
in July 1999.

The report is available at:
ftp://ftp.cea.berkeley.edu/pub/reports/esab/FY98_ESAB_report_ver11.txt 

2.4 EUVE Right Angle Program (RAP) Report 
-----------------------------------------

The EUVE project no longer supports a formal EUVE RAP(Right Angle Program) 
but we still take RAP data and Dr. Damian Christian - now at STScI - analyses 
the data through an ADP funded program.

Here is status report on RAP from Dr. Christian:

Our recent second RAP catalog (The Second Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer 
Right Angle Program Catalog, D.J. Christian, N. Craig, W. Cahill, 
B. Roberts, R.F. Malina, AJ, 117, p. 2466, May 1999) presents the 
detection of 235 extreme ultraviolet sources, of which 169 were new 
detections.  These observations covered the interval between January 1994 
(end of first RAP catalog) and November 1998 with a sky coverage of 
17%.  This catalog also presents the discovery of a 23.7 hour period 
from DA white dwarf GD 394 and detections of stellar flares from  
about one dozen late-type stars, including the AU Mic-like flare from 
M star EUVE J1438-432. RAP data from November 1998 to April 1999 has 
been analyzed and includes ~20 source detections with about 12 new 
sources. Analysis of more current RAP data is continuing until this 
fall, and a renewal ADP was applied for.

Calibration observations for Cycle 7 were conducted in May and June 1999. 
The bright white dwarf HZ43 was observed on May 16 and 17 using all 
quadrants of the Scanners and using the Spectrometers in order to test for 
loss of sensitivity. The white dwarf GD153 was similarly observed on 
21 May using the DS/lexan imager. The bright X-ray source Sco X1 was
observed on 23 May and 16 June in order to obtain the X-ray responses of 
the Scanner lexan and Al/Ti/C quadrants, and the DS/lexan quadrant. 
Analysis of these new calibration observations is now being conducted.

EUVE calibration observations do not have proprietary rights.  Interested
parties should be able to download this data from STScI (see "Recent EUVE
Data Releases" below).
