Voyager 2's Miranda image catalog
Miranda is the smallest of Uranus' major moons with a diameter of only 471 kilometers. Voyager 2 passed within 26,000 kilometers of it during its January 24, 1986 flyby, capturing a high-resolution mosaic covering the entire sunlit southern hemisphere and revealing its strange, contorted terrain.
