  • We observed Comet C/Siding Spring using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) during its close approach to Mars. The high spatial resolution images obtained through the F689M, F775W, and F845M filters reveal the characteristics of the dust coma. The dust production rate of C/Siding Spring, quantified by Afρ, is 590 ± 30, 640 ± 30, and 670 ± 30 cm in a 420 km radius aperture at a 38° solar phase angle through the three filters, respectively, consistent with other observations at a similar time and… CONTINUE READING
