Dual crescent view of Neptune and its moon Triton

Dual crescent view of Neptune and its moon Triton was on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's exhibition, Beyond: Visions of Planetary Landscapes, from May 26, 2010 - May 2, 2011. 

This crescent view of the outermost planet and its moon is one of the last images recorded by Voyager 2’s cameras as it sped onwards to interstellar space, having surveyed most of the outer Solar System.
