International Halley Watch Photometric Magnitudes of Comet Halley

A newer version of this data set has been publicly released. Go here for the current version.


Abstract: NASA's International Halley Watch (IHW) has created a Comet Halley Archive. The collection of data spans the full wavelength range as submitted by scientists to the IHW. The observations belong to one of the following Disciplines: Amateur, Astrometry, Infrared Studies, Large-Scale Phenomena, Meteor Studies, Near-Nucleus Studies, Photometry and Polarimetry, Radio Studies, and Spectroscopy and Spectrophotometry. The data collected by these nine disciplines were augmented by Spacecraft measurements. The data were submitted to IHW, but the evaluation and selection for the Archive has been the primary responsibility of the Discipline Specialist Teams for each network in cooperation with the Lead Center. The Photometry and Polarimetry Network collected 3318 magnitudes for the Broadband Photometry Subnetwork. These data span the dates from 1981 December 02 to 1988 May 19.
