By David Williams

A set of six CD-ROM volumes prepared by NASA's Planetary Data System and containing observations of Comet D/Shoemaker-Levy 9 and Jupiter prior to, during, and after the collisions between the comet fragments and Jupiter in July 1994 are now available at NSSDC. The CDs include spectral data and images from the International Ultraviolet Explorer, Hubble Space Telescope, Galileo, and Earth-based observatories such as Mount Stromlo/Siding Spring and the European Southern Observatory. At least six additional CDs are being prepared and should be ready within the next year or so. For more information on these CD-ROMs and an on-line ordering form, see
