IRTF/MIRSI Mid-IR Images of 9P/Tempel 1 during Deep Impact Encounter


Abstract: Mid-IR images of Comet 9P/Tempel 1 were obtained at the NASA IRTF during the period from July 2-18, 2005 UT. These observations were taken as part of a campaign designed to support the science objectives of the Deep Impact spacecraft around the time of its encounter with Tempel 1. This data set contains all raw images, including those required for reduction and photometric calibration of the comet observations.
