Tempel 1 Jets
This coma image, has been enhanced to improve the contrast of the coma's features. Both panels show the enhanced image, but the right panel also includes marks highlighting the radial jet features. Each red line denotes the bright centerline of a jet, while pairs of yellow lines define the "edges" of broader fan features. An extension of each line across the face of the nucleus should cross the jet's source, though for clarity, this has not been done. Also, some of the jets are likely to have their sources on the far side of the nucleus. The blue lines denote the edges of the shadow cast by the nucleus onto the coma. Linear displays are used for both the coma and the inset nucleus, but the ranges have been shifted by a factor of ten so that both components can be seen in the same image. Image frames 9000852 and 9000848.
