The Solar System is home to a cloud of dust that orbits the Sun and makes its presence known by virtue of scattered light (Zodiacal Light) that can be seen after dusk and before dawn. Within this cloud are bands of dust orbiting near the ecliptic plane, evidenced by an excess of scattered light at discrete ecliptic latitudes. Dedicated dust detectors borne by spacecraft in transit of the solar system have detected few such particles of the appropriate size owing to limited detector aperture and…

Interstellar Dust in the Solar System
Abstract The Ulysses spacecraft has been orbiting the Sun on a highly inclined ellipse almost perpendicular to the ecliptic plane (inclination 79°, perihelion distance 1.3 AU, aphelion distance 5.4
Dynamical Model for the Zodiacal Cloud and Sporadic Meteors
The solar system is dusty, and would become dustier over time as asteroids collide and comets disintegrate, except that small debris particles in interplanetary space do not last long. They can be
Observations of interplanetary dust by the Juno magnetometer investigation
One of the Juno magnetometer investigation's star cameras was configured to search for unidentified objects during Juno's transit en route to Jupiter. This camera detects and registers luminous
South-north and radial traverses through the interplanetary dust cloud
Identical in situ dust detectors are flown on board the Galileo and Ulysses spacecraft. They record impacts of micrometeoroids in the ecliptic plane at heliocentric distances from 0.7 to 5.4 AU and
Recent Origin of the Solar System Dust Bands
Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) observations in 1983 revealed the existence of several solar system dust bands. These dust bands are believed to be debris produced by recent disruption events
Juno Waves Detection of Dust Impacts Near Jupiter
The Juno spacecraft entered orbit at Jupiter on 5 July 2016. Since then, Juno has orbited Jupiter in high inclination orbits, crossing the ring plane near perijove. During 20 of the first 21
The zodiacal cloud is a thick circumsolar disk of small debris particles produced by asteroid collisions and comets. Their relative contribution and how particles of different sizes dynamically
Aspects of the mass distribution of interstellar dust grains in the solar system from in situ measurements
The in situ detection of interstellar dust grains in the solar system by the dust instruments on-board the Ulysses and Galileo spacecraft as well as the recent measurements of hyperbolic radar
