 Jupiter images taken in 2002

  Last Update:  2003/Feb/12

IRTF IMAGES

The NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF), on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, has set aside some time at the beginning and end of every night that the NSFCAM facility infrared camera is mounted on the IRTF, and Jupiter is observable, for a standardized set of observations of Jupiter in support of the Galileo mission. Glenn Orton, the principle investigator, is providing IJW with the most recent IRTF images throughout the Cassini flyby of Jupiter. IRTF will obtain additional images from the facility near-IR camera, NSFCAM. The IRTF 2001 2nd semester schedule is posted at http://irtfweb.ifa.hawaii.edu/userSupport/schedule.html. For more about the program and filters, please read caption.
