Images from Voyager 2 – As its sister probe Voyager 1 leaves our solar system, take a look at some of the images provided by Voyager 2. Here, Voyager 2 launches on August 20, 1977.
Images from Voyager 2 – Voyager 2's view of Jupiter during the spacecraft's approach.
Images from Voyager 2 – Voyager 2 provided this image of Jupiter's red spot.
Images from Voyager 2 – Ganymede, the largest of Jupiter's moons, is the largest moon in our solar system.
Images from Voyager 2 – A mosaic of Europa, Jupiter's smallest moon, shows bright areas, likely ice deposits, and darker areas that may be the rocky surface or areas with a more patchy distribution of ice. The most unusual features are systems of long linear structures that cross the surface in various directions, some of which are more than 1,000 kilometers long and about 2 or 3 kilometers wide.
Images from Voyager 2 – This August 1998 NASA file image shows a true color photo of Saturn assembled from Voyager 2 photos.
Images from Voyager 2 – An enhanced color image of Saturn's rings, as seen by Voyager 2.
Images from Voyager 2 – This image of Saturn's moon Enceladus shows impact craters up to 22 miles in diameter, as well as smooth uncratered areas.
Images from Voyager 2 – A false color view of Uranus made from images taken by Voyager 2.
Images from Voyager 2 – A computer enhancement of a Voyager 2 image emphasizes the high-level haze in Uranus' upper atmosphere. Clouds are obscured by the overlying atmosphere.
Images from Voyager 2 – Uranus' rings, photographed by Voyager 2 as it approached the plane of the Uranian ring system.
Images from Voyager 2 – Oberon, Uranus' outermost moon, shows several impact craters on the moon's icy surface.
Images from Voyager 2 – Miranda is the the 11th known satellite of Uranus. The moon was essential in the Voyager 2 mission in that it provided a gravity assist to propel the craft on toward Neptune.
Images from Voyager 2 – Uranus' moon Titania shows a crater-pocked surface as well as prominent fault valleys that stretch across the moon.
Images from Voyager 2 – Distinct bright patches are visible on Ariel, the brightest of Uranus' five largest satellites.
Images from Voyager 2 – This picture of Neptune shows the Great Dark Spot and its companion bright smudge.
Images from Voyager 2 – This image of Neptune's outermost ring shows how material clumps into three arcs.
Images from Voyager 2 – Ariel, another of Uranus' satellite's, shows a densely pitted surface that is also crisscrossed with numerous valleys and fault scarps.
