I know for a fact that Voyager 1 took at least one picture of Earth. Does anyone have any idea where raw data can be found? Or any data at all, for that matter? The only online image I can find is this one: http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA00013

Hey guys! Not too long ago I stumbled across this interesting entry from the NASA Photojournal that shows not only the "Pale Blue Dot" image, but also a full narrow-angle ISS view of Venus; an equivalent "Pale Yellow Dot" image, if you will. A wide-angle ISS view of the general area used as a context is also featured in this Photojournal entry. Here's the full image of Venus by Voyager 1, cropped from the Photojournal entry:

This got me to realize the obvious - there must be the original photographs that make up the Voyager family portrait somewhere out there! However, I have been unable to find any of these original photographs from the searches I've made across the internet. From what I can make out from the "Family Portrait" image itself, there's at least 38 wide-angle ISS images and 6 narrow-angle images. I'd imagine the other 17 frames of the apparent 60 frames, as the title of the Photojournal entry boasts, are a combination of attempted narrow-angle shots of Mercury and Mars that failed, and wide-angle shots that weren't included.

So, I come to ask the big question - where can one find the original frames of the Voyager Family Portrait? Where can the original "Pale Brown Dot", "Pale Golden Dot", "Pale Aqua dot", and "Pale Azure dot" images be found? unsure.gif

A few posts up I posted a link to all 60 raw images on imgur and the names of the directories the originals can be found in on PDS.

Never thought I'd be the person to give this decade-old thread some sense of finality. I still can't find the Earth and Moon pics, but here, finally, is the complete set of raw family portrait images in chronological order:

The original files are 055560.023 through 0055590.010 in the QEDR volume VGR_1223.
