Voyager 2's second-best view of Miranda
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Voyager 1 and 2, global views, Uranus' moons
This is the only Voyager 2 view of Miranda besides the highest-resolution mosaic taken near closest approach that reveals many of its surface features. The geometry of this view reveals much more of Arden corona (bottom) than was visible in Voyager 2's closest images; Inverness Corona is the one containing the bright check-mark pattern, toward the center of the disk.
