Miranda, one of the moons of Uranus, seen from Voyager 2, 24 January 1986. Creator: NASA

Miranda, one of the moons of Uranus, seen from Voyager 2, 24 January 1986. High-resolution image of Miranda, also designated Uranus V, the smallest and innermost of Uranus five moons, taken from the Voyager unmanned spacecraft from a distance of approximately 31, 000 kilometers (19, 000 miles), shortly before the spacecrafts closest approach to the Uranian moon. The high resolution of 600 meters (2, 000 feet) reveals fractures, grooves and craters, as well as features of different albedos (reflectancea). This view encompasses areas of older, heavily cratered terrain with a wide variety of forms. The grooves and troughs reach depths of a few kilometers (or miles) and expose materials of different albedos. The great variety of directions of fractures and troughs, and the different densities of impact craters on them, signify a long, complex geologic evolution of this satellite

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the enigmatic moon Miranda, as seen from Voyager 2 on January 24,1986. The image showcases the high-resolution details of this celestial body, which is also known as Uranus V. Taken from a distance of approximately 31,000 kilometers (19,000 miles), just before the spacecraft's closest approach to Miranda, this snapshot reveals a breathtaking landscape filled with fractures, grooves, and craters. The intricate features displayed in this photograph are brought to life by its high resolution of 600 meters (2,000 feet). These formations expose materials of different albedos and signify a long and complex geologic evolution for this satellite. The diverse directions of fractures and troughs further emphasize the rich history that has shaped Miranda over time. As we gaze upon this monochrome masterpiece captured by NASA's Voyager unmanned spacecraft during its exploration mission in the 1980s, we are reminded of the vastness and beauty present within our solar system. This image serves as a testament to humanity's insatiable curiosity about space travel and our relentless pursuit of knowledge beyond Earth's boundaries. With its striking texture and mesmerizing surface patterns illuminated against a dark backdrop, this print offers us an extraordinary glimpse into one small corner of our universe – an enduring reminder that there is still so much left to discover among the stars.
