Planning Solar System Observations with JWST in Cycle 1
Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)
3700 San Martin Drive
Baltimore, MD 21218
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
In light of the April 6, 2018 deadline for JWST Cycle 1 observing proposals, this 4-hour webinar will summarize JWST planning tools and their application to observations of solar system targets. These tools include the:
- Astronomer's Proposal Tool (APT)
- Exposure Time Calculator (ETC)
- Target Visibility Tool
- Best practices for Solar System proposers.
Operational constraints that affect observations of solar system targets will be summarized and include:
- Bright limits
- Pointing constraints
- Track rates
- The impact of ephemeris uncertainties on certain observing modes.
Science instrument capabilities and applications will be briefly summarized, but are described extensively in 12 papers in PASP v128, 959 & 960 (2016).
