Caption

Artist's impression of the encounter of the Voyager 2 spacecraft with the planet Uranus on January 24, 1986. Uranus' nine known rings are shown. The planet's polar axis points nearly in the ecliptic plane, & the rings appear almost fully open to Earth-based observers. Uranus will be Voyager 2's third planetary encounter following Jupiter in July 1979 & Saturn in August 1981. After Uranus, the spacecraft will be targeted for an encounter with Neptune in 1989.
