Voyager 2 Umbriel imaging sequence, in color This is the best that Voyager 2 has to offer on Umbriel, which was quite distant from the spacecraft when it shot through the Uranian system on January 24, 1986.

The highest-resolution view was colorized based on data from views captured while Voyager 2 was farther away; the other sets of images consist of observations taken through at least four different filters.

Original image data dated on or about January 24, 1986.
