University of Wales Images of Fragment KW Impacts


July 22 These images were taken from 20:21 Universal time to 21:19 U.T. The five images cover 58 minutes (upper left to lower right). The Equatorial zone can be clearly seen as well as the north and south equatorial belts. Some storms are just visable in the NEB.

The dark features in the southern hemisphere are due to impacts from fragments of the comet shoemaker-levy 9.

They seem to be impacts due to fragments K/W (At center then rotating to right),followed by L(rotating into view).

Images Taken using a 25cm Schmidt-cassegrain telescope at U.W.C.C . CCD data were taken with a lynxx CCD camera. Images processed to bring out featues.
