The Venus nightglow: Ground-based observations and chemical mechanisms
Abstract In 1999, observations of the Venus nightglow with the Keck I telescope showed that the 5577 A oxygen green line was a significant feature, comparable in intensity to the terrestrial green
Forbidden Oxygen Lines in Comets C/2006 W3 Christensen and C/2007 Q3 Siding Spring
Abstract We present observations and analysis of the forbidden oxygen lines in Comets C/2006 W3 (Christensen) and C/2007 Q3 (Siding Spring) at heliocentric distances of 3.13 and 2.96 AU,
The effect of solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and solar wind streams on Venus’ 5577 Å oxygen green line
Abstract We observed the Venusian 5577.3 A OI ( 1 S– 1 D) (oxygen green line) nightglow emission feature after solar flares, coronal mass ejections (CMEs), and solar wind streams from December 2010
Jupiter's White Oval turns red ☆
Jupiter's remaining White Oval changed color in late 2005 and became noticeably red in early 2006, as reported by amateur observers. We present wind and color analyses from high spatial resolution
Evolution of H2O, CO, and CO2 production in Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd during the 2011-2012 apparition
Abstract We present analysis of high spectral resolution NIR spectra of CO and H2O in Comet C/2009 P1 (Garradd) taken during its 2011–2012 apparition with the CSHELL instrument on NASA’s Infrared
Vertical Structure of Jupiter's Atmosphere at the Galileo Probe Entry Latitude
Abstract The vertical structure of Jupiter's atmosphere is examined to better characterize the latitudinal region of the Galileo probe entry site: +5°–10° planetographic latitude. One-hundred Hubble
Vertical structure modeling of Saturn's equatorial region using high spectral resolution imaging
Abstract A series of narrow-band images of Saturn was acquired on 7–11 February 2002 with an acousto-optic imaging spectrometer (AImS) at about 160 wavelengths between 500 and 950 nm. Our unique data
Geometry of the Saturn System from the 3 July 1989 Occultation of 28 Sgr and Voyager Observations
Abstract Observations of the 3 July 1989 Saturn occultation of 28 Sgr are combined with Voyager 1 and 2 occultation measurements to determine Saturn's pole direction and the radius scale for the ring
Abundance measurements of Titan’s stratospheric HCN, HC3N, C3H4, and CH3CN from ALMA observations
Abstract Previous investigations have employed more than 100 close observations of Titan by the Cassini orbiter to elucidate connections between the production and distribution of Titan’s vast,
Multispectral near-IR imaging of Venus nightside cloud features
Near-infrared imaging observations of the Venus nightside were made on May 17–23, 1996, at the Apache Point Observatory. The data were taken with an acousto-optic tunable filter camera (AOTF), which
