Uranus' crescent, January 25, 1986
An iconic view of Uranus captured by Voyager 2 with its wide-angle camera as it departed from its fast flyby.

Image is composed of three frames captured through orange, green, and violet filters on January 25, 1986 at about 11:56. They were flatfielded using a sky photo captured a few days later. The image is blown up to 150% of its original resolution.
