Caption: Miranda. Artwork of a half-lit Miranda, the smallest of the five major moons of the planet Uranus (not seen). Three other moons are shown in the background. Miranda orbits Uranus at a distance of around 130,000 kilometres. Miranda is less than 500 kilometres in diameter, but some of its ice cliffs are over 20 kilometres high. It is thought that it has been shattered and reformed several times in its past. This is thought to have caused the unique geology, such as the V-shaped 'chevron' at lower centre.
