Voyager: The Discoveries Continue On the Cover: Neptune hangs on Triton's horizon in this three-dimensional view created from Voyager images. While this view is dramatic, it isn't what an explorer would actually see while flying over Triton: The relief has been exaggerated about 30 times. In the foreground are Triton's maria ("seas"), with terraces testifying to several episodes of volcanic flooding—only the floods were of molten ice, not rock. Voyager's greatest legacy is that the spacecraft revealed strange worlds such as this to us for the first time.
