This view of pale blue-green Uranus was recorded by NASA's Voyager 2 on Jan 25, 1986, as the spacecraft left the planet behind. The thin crescent of Uranus is seen here between the spacecraft, the planet and the Sun.
These two pictures of Uranus were compiled from images recorded by NASA's Voyager 2 on Jan. 1O, 1986. This view is toward the planet's pole of rotation, which lies just left of center. The image on the right is a false-color image.
Hubble Captures Detailed Image of Uranus' Atmosphere
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope peered deep into Uranus' atmosphere to see clear and hazy layers created by a mixture of gases. Using infrared filters, Hubble captured detailed features of three layers of Uranus' atmosphere.
These three NASA Hubble Space Telescope images of the planet Uranus reveal the motion of a pair of bright clouds in the planet's southern hemisphere, and a high altitude haze that forms a 'cap' above the planet's south pole.
