Voyager 2's best image of Miranda Voyager 2's images of Miranda were the highest-resolution of any of Uranus' moons. Voyager 2 spent 17 minutes capturing numerous photos to make this high-resolution portrait.

Voyager 2's images of Miranda were the highest-resolution of any of Uranus' moons, which was fortunate because Miranda turned out to have interesting and bizarre geology. The images for this mosaic were captured on January 24, 1986, between 16:37 and 16:54 UTC; in the 17 minutes that separated the first from the final images, Miranda rotated noticeably, so it has always been a challenge to assemble this mosaic. This version was created by Ted Stryk.
