Hartley 2 nucleus shape model used for this study, generated using the ellipsoid parameters in Table 2. Each numbered arrow protruding from the surface represents a normal vector at a jet site location identified in the work of Thomas et al. (2013). The vector lengths were arbitrarily chosen for visualization only. The central black dot represents the point of zero latitude and longitude on the nucleus.
