         ELECTRONIC NEWSLETTER OF THE EUVE OBSERVATORY
--------------------------------------------------------------

The EUVE Electronic Newsletter was published quarterly by the EUVE Science Archive group and contained information on a variety of mission-related topics (e.g., science discoveries, the Guest Observer Program and the Science Archive). As events warranted, periodic news "flashes" were distributed to convey urgent and/or time-critical information. Past issues of the newsletter, along with some of the major highlights for each, are available below.

Past Issues of the EUVE Electronic Newsletter:

    Note that this issue of the EUVE electronic newsletter will be the last published on a monthly basis; beginning in 1998 distributions will be continued as events warrant (e.g., on a quarterly basis). This publication change is in response to the continued shrinking of available EUVE mission staffing and budgetary resources.
