Uranus’ moon Miranda is shown in a computer-assembled mosaic of images obtained Jan. 24, 1986, by the Voyager 2 spacecraft. Miranda is the innermost and smallest of the five major Uranian satellites, just 480 kilometers (about 300 miles) in diameter. Nine images were combined to obtain this full-disc, south-polar view. via NASA http://ift.tt/2jBNLIN

  1. Miranda’s one of my favorite moons, anywhere in the solar system. The strange, jagged landscape, all of it. It’s a really interesting place. I recently did some research on Uranus’s moons, and found them to all be interesting, but Miranda’s the tops. As an added bonus, all of Uranus’s moons are named after characters from Shakespeare and Alexander Pope. Thanks for posting this!
