Uranus Skin

uranus • this skin is by James Hastings-Trew, who "...painted this map pretty much from scratch, based on images found around the internet. Generally, Uranus looks like a featureless grey-green ball in most of the photographs on the net, but I found some Hubble pictures which clearly showed some transient white streaks in the atmosphere. I also found a contrast enhanced image of the atmosphere which clearly showed a gradient of color from the pole to the equator. There is a brownish smog which is concentrated at the poles, which gets progressively lighter as you move down to the equator. The contrast enhancement also showed some darkish streaks." Via his Planet Texture Maps page.
