Elsinore corona on Uranus' satellite Miranda

Miranda
Voyager 2 image of Uranus' moon Miranda showing the 323 km diameter Elsinore Corona is the upper portion. This corona is centered at 25S, 257E, and indicates vigorous tectonic activity at some point in Miranda's history. Just below and left of the center of the image can be seen the 16 km diameter Stephano crater, at 41 S, 234 E. The lower right portion of the image shows ancient cratered terrain. North is at 11:00 and the resolution of the image, taken from 35,000 km, is about 700 meters. (Voyager 2, FDS 2684620, P-29514)
