Ted that an amazing find congratulations on your discovery!!! I made a 4 frame animation from your image.

How do you get access to the Voyager 2 data? would you be interested in doing a interview on one of our radio shows?

I think it is amazing to find data that has been over looked and look forward to more discoveries.

Ted, your work is just incredible !!!
I witnessed the VGR2 encounter at JPL in 1989 and I'm amazed by what you did with those "old" images.
Thanks again and CONGRATULATIONS !!!! smile.gif

Thanks! I really couldn't believe it, to be honest. I didn't expect to find anything new that was so prominent in images taken near closest approach. Maybe something that was brought out with special processing, or lurking in some Observatory Phase or Far Encounter picture, but this was a real surprise. The fact that Despina and its shadow are similar in size to reseau marks is probably to blame.
