Miranda, innermost of Uranus' large satellites, is seen at close range as part of a Voyager 2 high-resolution mosaicking sequence. This clear-filter, narrow-angle image shows an area about 250 km (150 mi) across, at a resolution of about 800 meters (2,600 feet). Two distinct terrain types are visible; a rugged, higher-elevation terrain (right) and a lower, striated terrain. Numerous craters on the rugged, higher terain indicate that it is older than the lower terrain. Several scarps, probably faults, cut the different terrains. The impact crater in the lower part of this image is about 25 km (15 mi) across.
