DART Las Cumbres Observatory Sinistro Imager Raw Data Collection


Abstract: This collection consists of raw images from the Las Cumbres Observatory Sinistro Imager. We obtained images of the NEO (65803) Didymos binary asteroid and supporting calibration data with the Las Cumbres Observatory global telescope network through several filters. These images were obtained in support of NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission. The DART mission was a planetary defense mission designed to test and measure the deflection caused by a kinetic impactor (the spacecraft) on the orbit of Dimorphos asteroid around its primary, Didymos. These ground-based observations were used to obtain light curves of Didymos and time the mutual events of Dimorphos to determine the period change caused by the impact of the DART spacecraft.
