The moons of Uranus, to scale

The moons of Uranus, to scale

The major moons of Uranus to scale. These images were taken on January 24, 1986. The geologic diversity these moons show begs for another mission to explore them thoroughly. Sadly, we have never been back, and we have no plans to go back. Top row: Titania, Oberon. Bottom Row: Umbriel, Ariel. Top Middle: Miranda. Bottom Middle: Puck.

Oberon, moon of Uranus (left), and Charon, moon of Pluto (right). These worlds are of similar size and both exhibit intriguing geology. Oberon was barely glimpsed by Voyager 2 as it flew by the Uranian system on January 24, 1986, while Charon received a close encounter by the New Horizons spacecraft on July 14, 2015. Charon's complex geology makes the barely-studied moons of Uranus even more tantalizing.
