You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Neptune Revisited

Daniel Machácek does some modernizing of old Voyager 2 data at neptune. You can clearly see a shadow of one of Neptune’s moons at the top right edge and two others in the same area that are much less obvious. Interesting thing about data is that it is often better than the processing technology that happens to be available at the time the actual missions took place. Add to that the fact that there is a small army of talented freelance imagers like Daniel, the result is what feels like new images from old missions.
