Uranus South Polar Atmospheric Structure
Filed under pretty pictures, atmospheres, amateur image processing, Voyager 1 and 2, Uranus
Voyager 2's best image of Uranus' south pole, processed to bring out atmospheric structure. The circular feature is real, but some details are not. In particular, nearly horizontal lines are artifacts from flatfielding.
