This picture of Neptune was produced from the last whole planet images taken through the green and orange filters on the Voyager 2 narrow angle camera. The images were taken at a range of 4.4 million miles from the planet, 4 days and 20 hours before closest approach. The picture shows the Great Dark Spot and its companion bright smudge; on the west limb the fast moving bright feature called Scooter and the little dark spot are visible. These clouds were seen to persist for as long as Voyager's cameras could resolve them. North of these, a bright cloud band similar to the south polar streak may be seen. (PIA01492)
This is a relatively simple Perl program that can be used as a CGI to manage a gallery of images and display them at random (or not so random). There is an example to the right. Reload the page, and you will get a different image over there (there are only 10 images in the gallery, so repeats are possible).
Just place the
Patches, and suggestions are always welcome.
