Faint dust in Uranus' rings

Faint dust in Uranus' rings
Faint dust in Uranus' rings As Voyager 2 exited the Uranian system it looked back and caught the rings at a very high phase angle. The lighting makes lanes of fine dust visible that are not seen from any other point of view. The image is smeared because it is a 96-second exposure. NASA / JPL
