These images show Jupiter as seen at 13:45UT on 01/14/1995 with the NICMASS infrared camera at the 2.4m Hiltner telescope of the Michigan-Dartmouth-MIT Observatories at Kitt Peak. Considerable structure is visible in the diffused debris from the impacts. These images were obtained through filters at 1.64um (1%), 2.12um (1%), and 2.23-2.29um. Observers were Mike Skrutskie and David Morris from the University of Massachusetts and Kester Allen from Amherst College.
