Abstract

The three-channel spectrometer (TKS) aboard the Vega 2 spacecraft recorded infrared and visible spectra near the nucleus of comet Halley. Spectra in the range 0.95–1.9 µm at a distance of 300 km from the nucleus reveal the H2O 1.38-µm band and OH bands, the latter excited by dissociation of a parent molecule.
