The complete set of Galileo images of Shoemaker-Levy 9 and asteroid 243 Ida
are now available from NSSDC on the Galileo CD-ROM volume 16. There are 26
SL-9 frames: 13 raw frames and 13 enhanced versions. Each frame contains
a sequence of images captured by the Galileo SSI camera. The sequences
contain either 56 images of Jupiter (an example is shown above)
or a group of camera slew images (at the right)
taken near the time of an SL-9 fragment collision. These images are
available on-line on the
Galileo CD SL-9 image page.
There are also 104 images of Ida and its small satellite, Dactyl, taken during the Ida encounter. Shown below is one of the most proximal of these, image 1352R.
Image viewing software and information on the images is available on the CD-ROM.
Ordering information and more information on the Galileo CD-ROM set
is available from the
NSSDC CD-ROM catalog.
