This computer generated montage created from images obtained by NASA's Voyager 2 shows Neptune as it would appear from a spacecraft approaching Triton, Neptune's largest moon at 2706 km mi) in diameter.
NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft flew by Triton, a moon of Neptune, in the summer of Dr. Paul Schenk, a scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, used Voyager data to construct the best-ever global color map of Triton.
This view of the volcanic plains of Neptune's moon Triton was produced using topographic maps derived from images acquired by NASA's Voyager spacecraft during its August 1989 flyby, 20 years ago this week.

Triton is the largest moon of Neptune. It’s also the only moon in the solar system that orbits its planet in the opposite direction of the planet’s rotation. Triton is one of the few moons in our solar system that is volcanically active
