These images were taken at 04:12 UT (21:12 PDT) on July 20, 1994. Three sets of speckle frames were taken in rapid succession at different wavelengths:
single filter frame exposure 550 +/- 40 nm 300 ms 20 frames 700 +/- 40 nm 400 ms 20 frames 850 +/- 40 nm 700 ms 20 framesThe total sequence was finished within about 4 minutes with the goal of keeping the motion blur due to planet rotation within the desired resolution element size of the reconstructed image ( < 0.5 arcseconds).
Impact sites G and H are visible, with L just set over the limb. South is up, east is left, so that the planet is rotating from left to right.
The three color bands are combined into a pseudo-color image with 550 nm = blue, 700 nm = green, and 850 nm = red.
