Abstract

We detected the nucleus of Comet 22P/Kopff at 4.87 AU from the Sun with the two IRS peak-up cameras of the Spitzer Space Telescope on April 19, 2007. Using the thermal model of [Groussin, O., and 15 colleagues, 2007. Icarus 187, 16-25], we derive a nucleus size of 1.89 ± 0.16   km, in agreement with [Lamy, P., Toth, I., Jorda, L., Groussin, O., A'Hearn, M.F., Weaver, H.A., 2002. Icarus 156, 442-455], and a thermal inertia I â?¤ 30   J K-1 m-2 s- 1 / 2. © 2008 Elsevier Inc.
