Uranus' crescent, February 1, 1986
A week after its flyby, Voyager 2 still had a high-resolution view of Uranus' receding crescent using its narrow-angle camera.

Image is composed of three photos taken through orange, green, and violet filters on February 1, 1986 at about 20:48. Images were flatfielded using a "sky" image taken on the same date. The color of the crescent is fairly subjective.
