This data consists of resampled data from the Low Energy Charged Particle (LECP) Experiment on the Voyager 2 Spacecraft for the period when Voyager 2 was in the vicinity of the planet Neptune. The period covered is 1989-08-24T00:00:00.000 SCET to 1989-08-27T00:00:00.000 SCET. This data approximates a time series of charged particle fluxes from a selection of channels available from the instrument. The word approximates is used because the angle scanning modes of the instrument complicates the nature of the data. At times the instrument mechanically scans, and at times it is fixed to look at a specific direction. With the type of data given here, the fluxes are angle averaged for those time periods when the instrument is scanning, and are time averaged over an arbitrary period (12 or 24 sec, see below) for the periods when the detectors are stationary.
