S/2003 N1 Neptune Satellite Movie Images
These images show the discovery of the new Neptune satellite S/2003 N1
taken about 38 minutes apart on UT August 29, 2003 with the Subaru 8.3
meter telescope atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The motion of the satellite
clearly stands out compared to the steady state background of stars
and galaxies. Neptune is not in the field, but is about half a degree
to the West of these images. Images on the right are the same as
those on the left except that they have a red circle showing the
location and movement of the new satellite.
