EPOXI MRI-VIS EPOCh Earth Raw Images


Abstract: This data set contains raw, 750-nm filter images of Earth acquired by the Deep Impact Medium Resolution Visible CCD (MRI) during the EPOCh and Cruise 2 phases of the EPOXI mission. The MRI instrument was only used during the first Earth observing period on 18-19 March 2008 and the last two on 27-28 March and 04-05 October 2009. Each observing period lasted approximately 24 hours, and one MRI image was taken simultaneously with the first north/south scan of the HRI IR spectrometer at half-hour intervals to serve as context spectra. On 27-28 September 2009 during the first attempt at Earth south polar observations, a full set of MRI context images was acquired although the HRII and HRIV instruments were turned off by fault protection shortly after the sequence started.
