Motion in the R-Aquarii Jet 1991, 1992, 1993: 3-D Perspective

Images from the Hubble Space Telescope's Faint Object Camera from 1991, 1992, and 1993 demonstrate motion in the R Aquarii emission jet. Since images from this period were still affected by the primary mirror flaw, the images were restored to the original design resolution using the maximum entropy method.

Data Used:
Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was installed in Dec 1993 and used to obtain high resolution images of astronomical objects. This camera was removed in the last servicing mission so it is no longer in service.
1991/10/21, 1992/12/01, 1993/10/17
Note: While we identify the data sets used in these visualizations, we do not store any further details nor the data sets themselves on our site.
