|Target Name: Uranus, Is a satellite of: Sol (our sun), Mission: Hubble Space Telescope (HST), Spacecraft: Hubble Space Telescope, Instrument: Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, Product Size: 2400 samples x 2433 lines.|
Original Caption Released with Image: A recent Hubble Space Telescope view reveals Uranus surrounded by its four major rings and by 10 of its 17 known satellites. This false-color image was generated by Erich Karkoschka using data taken on August 8, 1998, with Hubble's Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer. Hubble recently found about 20 clouds - nearly as many clouds on Uranus as the previous total in the history of modern observations.
The Wide Field/Planetary Camera 2 was developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and managed by the Goddard Spaced Flight Center for NASA's Office of Space Science.
