Science Verification: Long Baselines - Juno

Description / Details of the target

Target: Juno. Juno is an asteroid that is often used for ALMA calibrations.

Spectral setup: continuum TDM, with spectral windows centred at 224, 226, 240 and 242 GHz (Band 6).

Capabilities to be verified

10km baselines in Band 6. The long baseline capability for ephemeris targets.


Juno is the most suitable ephemeris target that is within the LST range required for observations during the imaging period of the Long Baseline Campaign (Oct/Nov 2014).


Observed. Data will be released on 17 February 2015.

An announcement will appear on the ALMA Science Portal prior to any Science Verification data being publicly released.
