Her name was Linda Morabito then; she worked for us for many years as Linda Kelly. Not sure where she is now. We almost certainly have a copy of that picture somewhere. Send me an email and I'll connect you to the person who might be able to come up with the picture.

Gotta share an unforgettable memory here. On Feb 26 1979 I was lucky enough to see a total eclipse in central Montana...even luckier, there was a group of JPL scientists nearby with a Celestron 8 SCT (my equivalent of a Corvette at my age then (16)). One of them was Michael Kobrick, who later was the lead radar scientist on Magellan, and unfortunately I can't recall the names of the others. However, they did tell me that V1 was showing some "interesting" things on Io...about a week later, what an understatement THAT turned out to be... blink.gif

EDIT: BTW, wasn't Linda the first person to spot a plume from Io?

Yes. If I recall correctly, she was on the navigation team and spotted the plume from an optical navigation image.

Actually, Linda spotted what she thought was another moon peeking out from behind Io. But, as a crack member of the navigation team, she quickly realized that none of the other moons big enough to make such a large image could possibly be arrayed behind Io. It was then that she decided it had to be a feature on Io's limb itself, which led to the conclusion that it must be a volcanic plume.

Er, either that's the same TPS story I linked to in my first reply to your original post Phil, or there's an echo in here...? smile.gif

Sure doesn't look like there's one available on the Web, Phil; did quite a few searches under her name(s), no luck. sad.gif Seems like your best bet would be to contact the JPL PR department & see if they have the original pic on file somewhere...given the vintage, the highest-res available would be the original film. I'm sure that they would be more than happy to help you, esp. since you're engaged in a project focused on their achievements; I know from personal experience as a kid that they'll mail great pics to you at the drop of a hat! smile.gif Here are some contact numbers:

Good luck, man!

EDIT: Looks like the person you need to talk to is Carolina Martinez, 818-354-9382.

Well, NASA stopped sending photos & info in 2001, when almost everything became available on the Internet...
Nowadays NASA works with civilian contractors PhotoLabs to which they send negatives, so You need the official NASA photo-number for a specific image in order to get an 8X10 photo-print wink.gif
I have already contacted JPL archives but I'm sharing another photo from NASA SP-439:
