New Horizons LORRI Pluto Encounter Raw Data v2.0

This data set has been superseded. Go here for the current version.


Abstract: This data set contains Raw data taken by the New Horizons Long Range Reconnaissance Imager instrument during the Pluto encounter mission phase. This is VERSION 2.0 of this data set. This data set contains LORRI observations taken during the the Approach (Jan-Jul, 2015) and Encounter mission sub-phases, including flyby observations taken on 14 July, 2015; the data are limited to those downlinked from the spacecraft as of the end of January, 2016. The rest of the downlinked data for this mission phase will be delivered in a future data set. Refer to the data set description above and the sequence table provided in the documentation for more detail about which observations are present in this data set. This is version 2.0 of this data set. Changes since version 1.0 include data downlinked between the end of July, 2015 and the end of January, 2016. These include Pluto Charon, Nix and Hydra observations from Approach, the day of the flyby, and Departure, lossless downlinks of images downlinked with lossy compression in version 1.0, Nix orbit determination observations, Multi-maps and VIS-UV maps taken in coordination with ALICE, High-phase and departure imaging, satellite photometry, non-critical navigation imaging, Kerberos and Styx imaging, KBO 1994 JR1 observations and departure ring-search observations taken in November, 2015, Charon dark side lit by Pluto-shine, and several other observations. The lossy images from Version 1.0 were recalibrated, including expanding the 'bad' pixel designation of 8x8 boxes affected by the first 34 pixels of header information in the calibrated quality map. Also, updates were made to the documentation and catalog files, primarily to resolve liens from the V1.0 peer review.
