Voyager 2 images of the southern hemisphere of Uranus indicate that submicrometersize haze particles and particles of a methane condensation cloud produce faint patterns in the atmosphere. The alignment of the cloud bands is similar to that of bands on Jupiter and Saturn, but the zonal winds are nearly opposite. At mid-latitudes (-70� to -27�), where winds were measured, the atmosphere rotates faster than the magnetic field; however, the rotation rate of the atmosphere decreases toward the… Expand
Voyager 2 at Neptune: Imaging Science Results
Voyager 2 images of Neptune reveal a windy planet characterized by bright clouds of methane ice suspended in an exceptionally clear atmosphere above a lower deck of hydrogen sulfide or ammonia ices.Expand
Evolution of the dusty rings of Uranus
Abstract We present high quality images of the uranian ring system, obtained in August 2002, October 2003, and July 2004 at 2.2 μm with the adaptive optics camera NIRC2 on the Keck II telescope.Expand
Keck Adaptive Optics Images of Uranus and Its Rings
Abstract We present adaptive optic images of Uranus obtained with the 10-m W. M. Keck II telescope in June 2000, at wavelengths between 1 and 2.4 μm. The angular resolution of the images isExpand
Voyager 2 Radio Science Observations of the Uranian System: Atmosphere, Rings, and Satellites
TLDR
Voyager 2 radio occultation measurements of the Uranian atmosphere suggest a new kdnd of planetary ring feature characterized by highly ordered cylindrical substructures of radial scale on the order of meters and azimuthal scale of kilometers or more. Expand
The atmosphere of Uranus: Results of radio occultation measurements with Voyager 2
During Voyager 2's occultation by Uranus the radio link from the spacecraft probed the atmosphere of the planet at latitudes ranging from 2° to 7° south. The measurements, which were conducted at twoExpand
Uranus at equinox: Cloud morphology and dynamics
Abstract As the 7 December 2007 equinox of Uranus approached, collaboration between ring and atmosphere observers in the summer and fall of 2007 produced a substantial collection of ground-basedExpand
Post-equinox dynamics and polar cloud structure on Uranus ☆
Abstract Post equinox imaging of Uranus by HST, Keck, and Gemini telescopes has enabled new measurements of winds over previously sampled latitudes as well as measurements at high northern latitudesExpand
Uranus' Apparent Seasonal Variability in 25 HST Filters☆
Abstract Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of Uranus taken in 1997 reveal that Voyager's view of the southern hemisphere was not representative of the rest of the planet. The banded structure withExpand
Voyager radio occultation by Uranus' rings: I. Observational results
The radio occultation of Voyager 2 by the rings of Uranus on January 24, 1986 provided the first observations of this system at microwave wavelengths (λ = 3.6 and 13 cm). Fine resolution (50 and 200Expand
The Ring System of Uranus: Flat as a Pancake, Sprinkled with Dust
We present a high quality image of the uranian ring system, obtained in July 2004 at 2.2 {micro}m with the adaptive optics camera NIRC2 on the Keck II telescope. Using these data, we report the firstExpand

Voyager imaging experiment
The overall objective of this experiment is exploratory reconnaissance of Jupiter, Saturn, their satellites, and Saturn's rings. Such reconnaissance, at resolutions and phase angles unobtainable fromExpand
Infrared Observations of the Uranian System
TLDR
Estimates of phase integrals suggest that these satellites have unusual surface microstructure, which are nearly identical values at the poles and near the equator but are 1 or 2 degrees lower at mid-latitudes in both hemispheres. Expand
The Uranian satellites - Surface compositions and opposition brightness surges
Abstract High-precision spectrophotometry at 5% resolution has been obtained for the Uranian satellites Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, and Oberon. These spectra cover the wavelength region 1.43–2.57 μm andExpand
Near-infrared studies of the satellites of Saturn and Uranus
New JHK photometry and spectrometry (1.4–2.6 μm) are presented for Enceladus, Hyperion, Phoebe, Umbriel, Titania, and Oberon. From spectral signatures, mainly in the 2-μm region, water ice isExpand
Voyager 2 observations of Saturn's northern mid-latitude cloud features - Morphology, motions, and evolution
Voyager 2 images provide a basis for detailed study of the morphology and circulation of Saturn's northern mid-latitudes. Both Saturn's large-scale cloud bands and the distribution of its local cloudExpand
Encounter with saturn: voyager 1 imaging science results.
TLDR
As Voyager 1 flew through the Saturn system it returned photographs revealing many new and surprising characteristics of this complicated community of bodies, including small inner satellites that interact gravitationally with one another and with the ring particles in ways not observed elsewhere in the solar system.

TLDR
Dynamically evolving radio events of various kinds embedded in these emissions suggest a Uranian magnetosphere rich in magnetohydrodynamic phenomena. Expand
