The New Horizons mission obtained data using a variety of instruments during the Jupiter encounter and for approximately 90 days following Jupiter closest approach. The bulk of the rings relevant New Horizons data was obtained by the LOng Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI), a high resolution optical camera.
While all of the New Horizons data are available from the PDS Small Bodies Node (SBN), the Rings Node maintains duplicate copies of all of the LORRI data and supporting SPICE files from the Jupiter encounter. The raw data is provided in a single volume while the same data in calibrated form is divided into three volumes. SPICE data is provided in a separate volume.
The information contained in the SOC Instrument Interface Control Document (ICD), and in the documents submitted for publication in Space Science Reviews (SSR) in 2007, is crucial to understanding the data in this archive. As such, the producers of this archive have included the best possible versions of these documents in the DOCUMENT subdirectory of each volume.
As a minimum, users of the LORRI data should review the following documents:
For information on the geometry data included in the labels and metadata, see the
The meta data provided in the original INDEX.TAB files is very limited. We have produced a single, expanded index file covering the entire calibrated data set (volumes NHJULO_2001, NHJULO_2002, and NHJULO_2003).
All of the LORRI data can be accessed directly from the table below.
We also provide browse images for all of the LORRI observations.
