        Editorial Notice: MPC planned power outage - Saturday 8 July 2023    
         There is a planned power outage at the facility where the Minor Planet
    Center's pipeline servers reside. The outage is scheduled to take place on
    Saturday 8 July 2023 from 09:00 UTC to 19:00 UTC.
         The MPC's web server will remain up and operational throughout the power
    outage and the MPC will continue to receive and archive all submitted
    observations. However these submissions will not be processed or published
    until power is restored to the pipeline server.
         With the goal of ensuring the rapid communication of NEO observations,
    the MPC will issue two DOUs on Saturday 8 July: one at ~07:00 UTC, and the
    second at ~21:00 UTC.
         We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
         Any suggestions or questions related to this power outage should be
    directed via the MPC's Jira Helpdesk: https://minorplanetcenter.net/contact
