Voyager 2's changing view of Triton This is a sequence showing the changing view as Voyager flew by Triton. The upper tip of the last view is reconstructed from other images because all the images were cut off.

Perhaps the most fascinating part of the flyby was Voyager's visit to Neptune's largest moon, Triton. It was an exhilarating feeling seeing the Neptunian system come to life.
