Automatic camera in the spacecraft Voyager 2: An original NASA colour offset photograph of Ariel, one of the five larger moons of Uranus. Exposure of January 24, 1986 at a distance of 170,000 kilometers. Back with describing text. Picture size 21.5×28 cm. Frame size 33×43 cm.

The unmanned spacecraft Voyager 2 was launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida in the late summer of 1977 and nine years later it reached photo distance of Ariel. The present picture is a result of this long journey - roughly 3 billion kilometers from Earth. On that background the distance between Ariel and Uranus seems very modest, only 191,000 kilometers.
