Map of Triton

Triton - NASA
Data from the Voyager 2 spacecraft was used to create this map of Triton

Dr. Paul Schenk, a scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (which is part of the Universities Space Research Association research organization) in Houston created this map of Triton. He used data gathered by the Voyager 2 spacecraft as it had flown by Neptune’s moon Triton in 1989. This is considered to be one of the best mapping of Triton.
