New Data for the WFCJ Collection

Michael Wong - 2020 May 7

wfcj coverageA set of Jupiter imaging observations over the 2016-2019 period is being released to the community in processed map form. The data are primarily synchronous with the 53-day period of close Jupiter approaches by the NASA Juno spacecraft. Images were obtained with the WFC3 instrument on the Hubble Space Telescope (225-889 nm) and with the NIRI instrument at the Gemini North Observatory (4.7 µm).

The observations are described in an open-access paper by Wong et al. in The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, and in a NASA press release out today.

The high-level science products are available at the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST): 

For questions or details on these data please contact Michael H. Wong.  Additional questions regarding accessing the data or using MAST may be directed to the Archive Help Desk.
