Caption

Interplanetary spaceprobe Voyager 2 is seen leaving its final port of call in the Solar System artwork by Julian Baum. After its flyby of Neptune's north pole on 24/Aug/89, Voyager 2 will descend sharply to rendezvous with Triton. Triton is thought to be a cold, rocky body with a very tenuous atmosphere of methane and probably a surface coating of methane frost. After its encounter with Triton, Voyager 2 will continue its journey out of the Solar System. In 358 thousand years it will pass within 0.8 light years of Sirius, one of the nearest stars.
