Hawkesbury Radio Astronomy Observatory

Vela Pulsar Observations

Observing PSR B0833-45 with a Small Aperture Antenna

B0833-45 Daily Observations

Below are the last HawkRAO observatory results of reception of Vela pulsar signals showing the Observatory Status, the Period Search Panel, the Glitch Monitor Panel, a Vela Information Panel and an Aggregate Pulse Profile.

For further details about the data displayed here see the 'Observation Information' page (opens a new window).  Also available is a daily observation summary text file and details of science results.

The current position of the Vela pulsar as observed at HawkRAO can be viewed on the 'Vela' page (see tab above).

On the 1st February 2019 at 14:09 (UTC) Vela 'glitched' (refer to ATel #'s 12466, 12481 & 12482).

This glitch (~ 2.5 ppm jump) was clearly seen in HawkRAO data in the MJD 58516 and following observations as shown below and also, possibly, in the last 8 minutes of the previous MJD 58515 observation.

The purpose of the observations has now evolved from waiting to detect a glitch to ongoing observation of the post-glitch behaviour.
