Original Caption Released with Image:

The terminator region of Titania, one of Uranus' five large moons, was captured in this Voyager 2 image obtained in the early morning hours of Jan. 24, 1986. Voyager was about 500,000 kilometers (300,000 miles) from Titania and inbound toward closest approach. This clear-filter, narrow-angle view is along the terminator -- the line between the sunlit and darkened parts of the moon. The low-angle illumination shows the shape of the surface very clearly. Among the features visible are long linear valleys perhaps 50-100 km (30-60 mi) wide and several hundred km (or mi) long. At least two directions of faulting are visible, as are many circular impact craters attributed to cosmic debris. The resolution of this image is about 9 km (6 mi). The Voyager project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
