One wide-angle and eight narrow-angle camera images of Miranda, taken by NASA's Voyager 2, were combined in this view. The controlled mosaic was transformed to an orthographic view centered on the south pole.
This 'family portrait' of Uranus' five largest moons was compiled from images sent back Jan. 20, 1986, by NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft. Even in these distant views, the satellites exhibit distinct differences in appearance.
Uranus' moon Miranda is shown in a computer-assembled mosaic of images obtained Jan. 24, 1986, by NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft. Miranda is the innermost and smallest of the five major Uranian satellites,
This mosaic of Miranda was obtained by NASA's Voyager 2 during its close flyby of the Uranian moon. Miranda exhibits varied geologic provinces where ridges and valleys of one province are cut off against the boundary of the next province.
This image of Miranda, Uranus' moon, was acquired by NASA's Voyager 2 on Jan. 24, 1986. Miranda displays a dramatically varied surface. Well shown are numerous ridges and valleys -- a topography that was probably produced by compressional tectonics.
Miranda reveals a complex geologic history in this view, acquired by NASA's Voyager 2 on Jan. 24, 1986, around its close approach to the Uranian moon. At least three terrain types of different age and geologic style are evident.
This image of the Uranian moon, Miranda, was taken Jan 24, 1986 by NASA's Voyager 2. This image reveals a bewildering variety of fractures, grooves and craters, as well as features of different albedos (reflectancea).
