Time span: 2003-12-29 to 2004-01-13


This data set contains calibrated images taken by the Stardust Navigation Camera from 28 January 2003 to 13 January 2004, including the comet 81P/Wild 2 encounter on 2 January 2004. There are two groups of images. The 'NAVIGATION' directory contains the images of the comet obtained as part of navigation sequences. These are not full-frame images, but contain sub-frame windows of the navigation stars and the comet. The 'ENCOUNTER' directory contains the images obtained during the encounter with the comet and are full-frame views. The images have been radiometrically calibrated. The images are in FITS format with detached PDS labels. This is PDS ID SDU-C-NAVCAM-3-RDR-WILD2-V1.0 on volume SDNC_0004. The data are available online at:
