McDonald Image of Fragment G Impact


This is a ROKCAM infrared camera image taken 19 July at 05:18 UT (00:18 am CDT) with the 2.7m telescope of The University of Texas McDonald Observatory. A filter was used to isolate absorption by molecular hydrogen gas at 2.12 microns. North is at the top and west is to the right. The bright spot on the southern portion of the disk of Jupiter is the location which was hit by comet fragment G. This image was taken by Dr. Beth Clark and Dr. William Cochran (University of Texas) and Dr. Yongha Kim (University of Maryland).
