    Unbelievable! Absolutely unbelievable!!
    Every time I meet someone defending manned spaceflight
    for aesthetical reasons (to attract the public and
    raise funds...) I show him that photo of a crescent
    Neptune with Triton.  Now I have another evidence to
    demonstrate that you only need a small CCD camera
    on the right place at the right time to catch the
    beauty of space, not seven guys inside a sardine can.
    I've seen similar shots but this is by far the most
    spectacular of them maybe due to the launch time
    with that sun on the horizon... Wow!
    Perhaps Justin Ray could post a better quality copy on his
    Website, preferably in MPEG format and full length. ;-)
