Miranda

Mosaic of high-resolution images of Miranda. One wide-angle and eight narrow-angle camera images of Miranda were combined in this view. The controlled mosaic was transformed to an orthographic view centered on the south pole. The trapezoidal region (about 200 km on a side) occurs near the south pole and is located near the center of the mosaic. The trapezoid's outer boundary and its internal patterns of ridges and band of contrasting albedo display numerous sharp corners.
