1.2 Completed Three Sets of WF/PC-2, FOC, FOS, and GHRS 5642 (Observations of the Impact of the Comet Shoemaker-Levy (1993E) and Jupiter)
The Faint Object Camera (f/96), WF/PC-2, FOS, and GHRS were all used made observations to support the Jupiter/Shoemaker-Levy event. This proposal represents the merger of several independent proposals. Twenty three different observations were received and displayed. Many were reported to be excellent. No anomalies were noted.
