Planning Solar System Observations with JWST in Cycle-1

In light of the April 6, 2018, deadline for JWST Cycle-1 observing proposals, a 4-hour webinar will be held on February 13 from 10a-2p (EST) and will summarize JWST planning tools and their application to observations of solar system targets. These tools include the Astronomer’s Proposal Tool (APT), Exposure Time Calculator (ETC), the Target Visibility Tool, and best practices for Solar System proposers.  Operational constraints that affect observations of solar system targets will be summarized and include: bright limits, pointing constraints, track rates, and the impact of ephemeris uncertainties on certain observing modes. Science instrument capabilities and applications will be briefly summarized, but are described extensively in 12 papers in PASP v128, 959 & 960 (2016).
