The terminator region of Titania, one of Uranus' five large moons, was captured in this Voyager 2 image obtained in the early morning hours of Jan. 24, 1986. Voyager was about 500,000 kilometers (300,000 miles) from Titania and inbound toward closest approach. This clear-filter, narrow-angle view is along the terminator -- the line between the sunlit and darkened parts of the moon. The low-angle illumination shows the shape of the surface very clearly. Among the features visible are long linear valleys perhaps 50-100 km (30-60 mi) wide and several hundred km (or mi) long. At least two directions of faulting are visible, as are many circular impact craters attributed to cosmic debris. The resolution of this image is about 9…
Voyager 2 has discovered two shepherd satellites associated with the rings of Uranus. The two moons, designated 1986U7 and 1986U8, are seen here on either side of the bright epsilon ring; all nine of the known Uranian rings are visible.
Venus Cloud Tops Viewed by Hubble. This is a NASA Hubble Space Telescope ultraviolet-light image of the planet Venus, taken on January 24 1995, when Venus was at a distance of 70.6 million miles (113.6 million kilometers) from Earth.
This perspective view of Venus, generated by computer from NASAs Magellan data and color-coded with emissivity, is a look westward across the Fortuna Tessera toward the slopes of Maxwell Montes.
