Miranda - Voyager 2

Color image of Uranus' moon Miranda from 147,000 km

Voyager 2 color composite image of the southern hemisphere of Uranus' satellite Miranda from 147,000 km. At 480 km diameter, Miranda is the smallest of Uranus' 5 major satellites. Even at this distance evidence of a complex geologic history can be seen. The large circular region is the 318 km diameter Arden Corona, centered at 29 S, 74 E. The image is centered at about 60S, 100 E and has a resolution of 2.7 km. (Voyager 2, P-29524)
