[1] The Cassini imaging science subsystem observed Europa in eclipse during Cassini’s Jupiter flyby. The disk-resolved observations revealed a spatially nonuniform emission in the wavelength range of 200–1050 nm (clear filters). By building on observations and simulations of Europa’s Na atmosphere and torus we find that electron-excited Na in Europa’s… CONTINUE READING
