Abstract

1985U1 is an irregularly shapedsatellite about 75 km in average radius that orbits Uranus between the ε{lunate} ring and Miranda. It is the only one of the 10 satellites of Uranus discovered by Voyager that was resolved in sufficient detail to permit determinations of the size, shape, and photometric properties. The albedo (0.07-0.09) is considerably lower than those of the large Uranian satellites and slightly higher than that of Saturn's Phoebe. The satellite's opposition magnitude should be about +20.5 in the V filter.
