Faint dust in Uranus' rings
Filed under pretty pictures, Voyager 1 and 2, Uranus' rings
As Voyager 2 exited the Uranian system it looked back and caught the rings at a very high phase angle. The lighting makes lanes of fine dust visible that are not seen from any other point of view. The image is smeared because it is a 96-second exposure.
