This is my first post on this forum, so I thought I'd try and make it interesting
I own a book entitled "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Space Exploration" (Richard S Lewis, Salamander Books, 1983). It is a 'coffee table' history of space exploration up to that point.
One picture on page 203 is . It is an image of the north temperate region of Jupiter allegedly taken by Pioneer 10.
What the picture also shows is what appears to be a 'spacecraft' flying across the image from upper left to upper right leaving a bluish exhaust trail.
I had planned to include a scan of the image, but my scanner is kaput, so the directions will have to suffice.
First, has anyone else seen the picture in question?
Second, does anyone have any idea what might have produced this picture (other than a 'spacecraft')?
Is there a Pioneer Image archive?
