Are these available somewhere online?


IIRC, there was some discussion on the forum of whatever happened to the PBS Voyager coverage a year or two ago, and the outlook did not look favorable for their survival; I've never found anything either. (I know; I'd love to watch it, too! sad.gif )

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

I do own (I think, I haven't cataloged in a long time) two different VHS videotapes labeled "Neptune All Night" which contain the live PBS coverage of the 1989 Neptune encounter by Voyager 2.

I have no idea whether it would even be legal (PBS copyrights, etc.) for me to try and convert these tapes into a digital format and upload them. And like I say, I've moved a couple of times since the last time I can guarantee that I saw those tapes. But I'll look around, see what I can find in my videotape boxes. (I don't even keep them on shelves anymore...)

Okay, finished up with those three mosaics (two high resolution NAC mosaics, and a more global scale WAC mosaic showing some terrain in the low-res gap in the USGS basemap):

Wow. The detail along the terminator is mind-blowing.

Don't worry about it. Neptune All Night is already on Youtube:

Great work Jason - the mosaics are wonderful!

Here's a contemporary interview with Linda Morabito, who was first to spot the volcanic plumes on Io:

Thanks, Ian. I knew I had seen that somewhere...I just couldn't remember where. turns out I have that show as an AVI file on my HDD.

BTW, I just got done with my last blog post on this topic:

One thing that stands out so much with these old videos is much images where over saturated.

Io looks so red!

Stunning mosaic Jason...

wow.... you know Io (and the entire Voyager 1 Jupiter encounter) broke down the old paradigms. We had never seen ACTIVE volcanoes on another world until the Voyager 1 Io encounter.

I too remember that PBS broadcast.... I believe it was Harold Masursky who sat there thrilled almost beyond words.
Watching from home I was ecstatic. It was a whole new universe out there beckoning.

Am I correct in assuming the images that look like smeared images that were steady for part of the exposure were cases of the scan platform moving during the exposure?

I believe that radiation caused a glitch on Voyager 1's spacecraft timer. Therefore, the scan platform was slewing during exposure for some of the images.
