On target: the 2014 MU69 pre-encounter background field

Postby StephenGwyn » Thu Oct 05, 2017 5:23 pm





New Horizons is still en route to its encounter with the Kuiper Belt Object, 2014 MU69.
The bullseye in the image marks the location where 2014 MU69 will be, as viewed from the
spacecraft, shortly before the encounter.

The data was acquired to look for possible variable stars, which might be confused
with the moving object. However since it's not far off the galactic centre, there
is a lot of stuff going on in the background: black clouds, emission nebulae and a *lot*
of stars. This is a false colour image: i, g, and r-band images were combined to produce
an RGB image. Thus the green nebula slightly to the left of
the bullseye is actually glowing red, presumably H-alpha emission.

versions of the images at higher resolution, and without the bullseye, can be found at:
