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

You mean besides this one:

not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

Yeah, I already know about that one. I'm looking for much closer ones.

I don't know if closer ones exist. I have searched for the raw data for the earth moon shot, but haven't found it.

I did the same - strangely the Voyager data sets dont start "0001" they start "0006" - and I'm guessing the first 5 are infact calib, checkout, and the images we're talking about.

I'm pretty sure I've seen closer images somewhere, but where, well, I have no idea. Then again, maybe I'm just confused. I know Mariner 10 took closeup images of Earth, maybe that's what I saw. But still...

*In case I implied otherwise, I'm also looking for Voyager 2 images of Earth.

Did the GALILEO spacecraft take such an image as well?

Galileo took far more image data during its Earth flybys than it was able to return from Jupiter.

And some of the most interesting images of earth from deep space probes contain almost no detail of the planet at all.... (imho) smile.gif

This is the problem with the older missions, there is not so much online but in real libraries etc. I am still loocking for Voyager press kits and other documents online, but not much luck so far.

I am sure the raws of the famous Earth-Moon shot are at some place, they have to be. The Earth-Moon pictures were only made by Voyager 1 (launched second), the reference for this is an old issue of National Geographic (1990) from the Neptune encounter. The idea to take a picture with both bodies came after the launch of Voyager 2, Ed Stone said there. Maybe there are shots from greater distance (optical navigation or check out) from both probes, but a far as I know close ups exist only made by Voyager 1.

A great source for Voyager pictures is:

http://pds-rings.seti.org/catalog/vgriss.html

But there is nothing you are looking for.

Btw. deglr6328: What does this picture show and which craft made it?

I think it's the Galileo laser-comms experiment.

Enhanced version of the original Voyager image of Earth.

Perspective.

Hey, I can see my house!

Did you remove the sunbeam purposely? Or did it just disappear when you enhanced it?

Your image certainly brings home the Pale Blue Dot theme.

At the distance Voyager 1 was from Earth in 1990, what would our planet's relative
magnitude be?
