Tritón, una luna que parece tan activa como Encelado...lástima que esté tan lejos y solo la Voyager 2 la haya visitado.

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.

Perspective...

our solar system, the sun, arcturus, antares, the milky way and the universe. How does the size of earth stack up.

New Voyager map reveals Neptune's strange moon Triton | Science Wire | EarthSky

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.

Triton. Old data reprocessed. The surface of Triton is very rugged, scarred by rising blobs of ice, faults and volcanic pits and lava flows composed of water and other ices. The surface is also extremely young and sparsely cratered, and could be geologically active today. Credit: NASA/JPL/Universities Space Research Association/Lunar & Planetary Institute.

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.

Earth-Like Planets Shattered By White Dwarf Stars, Reduced To Dust In Solar Wind

Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune

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

An illustration of the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud in relation to our solar system. The Solar System from The Time Now Covers each planet, the Asteroid Belt, the Kuiper Belt (refers to all objects past Neptune’s orbit), the Oort cloud, Pluto and the Plutoids (dwarf planets, not an old time rock band). and has links to more information. Very good graphics. Name origins of all these bodies are explained. Basic facts in basic language. Going in Astronomy.
