Catalog of New Horizons' close-approach images of Charon as of October 13, 2015
Catalog of New Horizons' close-approach images of Charon as of October 13, 2015 New Horizons will take a year to return all its science data to Earth. This image compiles the data released for Charon from the period of 48 hours around closest approach to date. Text at the right side gives an idea of what kinds of data are missing in between the images already returned to Earth. Images are taken as part of specific science observations. If any data from an observation has reached Earth, the text for that observation is blue. The numbers for time, range, and resolution represent the actual metadata for the first image taken in any observation. Gray italic text represents observations that were commanded, but for which data have not yet appeared on the raw images website. This text comes from a table of planned observations given to Emily Lakdawalla by Leslie Young in July 2014. Times, ranges, and resolutions in that document are not precisely correct; they may be off by the actual values by up to ten minutes, thousands of kilometers, and tens of meters, respectively. There is no public information regarding how many images are supposed to be in all of these observations. Observations for which data are on this compilation may include more images not yet returned from the spacecraft. New Horizons LORRI images can be found here. NASA / JHUAPL / SwRI / Emily Lakdawalla
