  • Jupiter rotation movie by Kendall F

    Jupiter rotation movie  by Kendall F
    Range 62,328,754 km; phase 9.8°; 3.6°S, 256.3°W
  • "Kodak moment": Jupiter full disk by Kendall F

    "Kodak moment": Jupiter full disk by Kendall F
    Range 29,079,744 km; phase 8.7°; 4.0°S, 263.9°W
    At this distance, Jupiter's globe will entirely fill the field of view of the long-range imager
  • Stellar occultation by Jupiter By Kendall F

    Stellar occultation by Jupiter By Kendall F
    The ultraviolet spectrometer will stare at a bright star as it appears to sink beneath Jupiter's limb. Stellar occultations provide information on the composition, temperature, density, and structure of the upper atmosphere of a planet
  • Stellar occultation by Jupiter By kendall F

    Stellar occultation by Jupiter By kendall F
    Scientist will watch as the same star rises from the limb on the other side of Jupiter
  • Io imaging: Pele on limb By Kendall F

    Io imaging: Pele on limb By Kendall F
    Range 7,856,307 km; phase 4.8°; 5.4°S, 340.2°W
    Lots of Io imaging is planned in order to check whether the many volcanoes discovered by Voyager and monitored by Galileo are active or dormant, and to search for changes in surface features that may have resulted from volcanic activity in the years since Galileo's demise. Researchers will examine Io's limb to look for telltale plumes signifying volcanic eruptions.
  • Europa UV spectroscopy by Kendall F

    Europa UV spectroscopy by Kendall F
    Range 8,071,585 km; phase 6.4°; 5.0°S, 6.6°W
    Scientist will be used repeatedly throughout the encounter to study the sparse atmosphere above Europa
  • Io approach imaging by Kendall F

    Io approach imaging by Kendall F
    Range 7,575,510 km; phase 7.4°; 5.5°S, 15.1°W
  • Rings: search for embedded ringmoons by Kendall F

    Rings: search for embedded ringmoons by Kendall F
    Because of its communications problems, Galileo was unable to perform searches for as-yet-undiscovered moons in Jupiter's ring system. New Horizons will perform the most detailed survey of Jupiter's rings to date: LORRI will take 49 images over 8 hours.
  • Io approach imaging by Kendall F

    Io approach imaging by Kendall F
    Range 6,627,459 km; phase 11.9°; 6.0°S, 84.7°W
  • Turn to Earth for communication session with the DSN by Kendall F

    Turn to Earth for communication session with the DSN by Kendall F
    New Horizons will spend more than 8 hours pointed at Earth, returning data, which will also permit the DSN to track New Horizons' trajectory
  • Europa UV spectroscopy By Kendall F

    Europa UV spectroscopy  By Kendall F
    Range 5,927,715 km; phase 17.3°; 6.1°S, 90.5°W
  • Jupiter Lyman alpha/H3+ airglow map By Kendall F

    Jupiter Lyman alpha/H3+ airglow map By Kendall F
    Range 5,894,924 km; phase 11.2°; 6.2°S, 239.6°W
    The hydrogen-rich atmosphere of Jupiter shows a lot of structure in ultraviolet wavelengths, especially at the Lyman alpha wavelength of 121.6 nanometers.
  • Ring imaging (for phase curve by kendall F

    Ring imaging (for phase curve by kendall F
    Range 5,799,275 km; phase 11.7°; ring opening angle 6.3°
    The light-reflecting properties of the icy and dusty surfaces of the particles in Jupiter's rings are highly dependent upon the phase (illumination angle) at which the observations are performed. LORRI will perform six detailed surveys of the ring system throughout the flyby to build up a detailed data set on how the brightness of the rings changes with changing phase.
