NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft flew by Triton, a moon of Neptune, in the summer of 1989. Dr. Paul Schenk, a scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, used Voyager data to construct the best-ever global color map of Triton.
Several craters are seen on the surface of 1985U1, one of several small moons of Uranus discovered by NASA's Voyager 2. The spacecraft acquired this single image, the only
close-up it obtained of any of the new moons, on Jan. 24, 1986.
NASA's Voyager 2 took this photo of Saturn's outer satellite, Phoebe, on Sept. 4, 1981, from 2.2 million kilometers (1.36 million miles) away. The photo shows that Phoebe is about 200 kilometers (120 miles) in diameter.
This long exposure of the ring region about 150,000 to 200,000 kilometers (90,000 to 120,000 miles) from the center of Saturn captured the very faint G-ring, seen at left. NASA's Voyger 2 took this image on Aug. 26, 1981.
Circulation around a large brown spot in Saturn's atmosphere can be seen in this pair of NASA's Voyager 2 images taken Aug. 23 and 24, 1981, from distances of 2.7 million and 2.3 million kilometers (1.7 million and 1.4 million miles), respectively.
NASA's Voyager 2 high-resolution view of Saturn's rings on Aug. 23, 1981, at a range of 3.3 million kilometers (2 million miles). The planets limb is visible through the C-ring and the inner part of the B-ring.
In this false-color photograph Voyager 2, obtained Aug. 20, 1981, from a distance of 6.4 million kilometers (4 million miles), north is to the upper left. This view of the northern edge of Saturn's North Temperate Belt.
In this image from NASA's Voyager 2 of Saturn, obtained Aug. 11, 1981, from a range of 14.7 million kilometers (9.1 million miles), north is at the upper right edge of the disc. Seen above the planet are the satellites Dione (right) and Enceladus.
NASA's Voyager 2 obtained this view of Saturn's moon Tethys on Aug.25, 1981, from a distance of 540,000 kilometers (335,000 miles). It shows the numerous impact craters and fault valleys of a very ancient surface.
Spokes are seen on the unlit side of Saturn's rings for the first time in this image from NASA's Voyager 2 wide-angle view obtained Aug. 28, 1981, from a distance of 3.4 million kilometers (2.1 million miles).
The outer edge of Saturn's A-ring is detailed in this image obtained by NASA's Voyager 2 on Aug. 26, 1981, just half an hour before closest approach, at a range of about 51,000 kilometers (31,700 miles).
NASA's Voyager 2 acquired this photograph of Saturn's A-ring Aug. 26, 1981, from a distance of 227,800 kilometers (141,500 miles). This view of the ring's outer edge shows a small bright, clumpy ring within the Encke Gap.
