Comet 9P/Tempel 1

UVOT image of Comet 9P/Tempel 1

Image of Comet 9P/Tempel 1 taken on 29 June 2005 using the Swift Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope (UVOT) through an ultraviolet filter centered on 2600 Angstroms. The image has been compensated for the motion of the comet on the sky, so background stars appear trailed. Swift will be watching the Deep Impact collision, scheduled for 1:52 AM EDT on July 4.
