JWST Solar System Observation Planning Workshops

Two 2.5 day workshops will be held this Fall for those interested in proposing solar system observations with the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The first (Nov. 13-15, 2017) will be at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), in Baltimore Maryland. The second (Dec.13-15, 2017) will be held at the European Space Research Technology Center (ESTEC), in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

Each workshop will include a mixture of presentations about the promise of JWST for solar system science, specifics on observer planning tools and observatory capabilities, and hands-on training and Q&A with the planning tools. Observations of solar system targets approved for guaranteed-time observers (GTOs) and through the Early Release Science (ERS) program will be summarized. The workshop is timed to support JWST cycle-1 open time proposals, which are expected to be due in February, 2018.
