MRO has completed it's slew to an absolute orientation. We see telemetry flowing from the spacecraft. Our high-gain antenna is now pointed directly at the Earth and we're transmitting normal engineering telemetry. In about 15 minutes, the spacecraft will load the command sequence that will configure our UHF antenna to record open-loop the UHF spectrum. Phoenix is now 33 minutes from entry.
