Oberon
Voyager 2 image of Uranus' satellite Oberon taken from 662,000 km. Oberon is the most distant major satellite from Uranus, and has a diameter of 1523 km. The dark spot to the right of center is the 206 km diameter crater Hamlet, centered at 46 S, 44 E. North is at 11:30. Note the terminator runs east-west on the planet, due to axis of Uranus and its satellites being approximately parallel to the ecliptic plane. (Voyager 2, 26836.25)
