Date of discovery and detection
In the first line of the header it claims that the rings were initially discovered by Voyager in 1989. In the second last line of the header t says that some of the arks of one of the rings havre changed remarkable little since their detection in 1980 - some 9 years prior to their discovery. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:17, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
- I think the difference represents the detection by occultations in the 1980s and the definitive observation of the rings during the Voyager fly-by in 1989.—RJH (talk) 18:44, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Featured Article Picture
- It's actually two pictures, one on either side of Neptune. The rings are very dark, so if Neptune had been in the same frame, it would have been very difficult to get a clear photo against the relative glare of Neptune. --Patteroast (talk) 13:47, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Not completely true...
The innermost ring of Neptune is called the Galle ring after Johann Gottfried Galle, the first person to see Neptune through a telescope (1846). Actually, Galileo was the first person to see Neptune through a telescope. Galle is the first person to see Neptune and unquestionably realize what it was. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:35, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
