This image of Triton was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's Faint Object Camera in September of 1995. It was created from a blue and ultraviolet image. The color is false but closely matches the color observed from voyager images. Triton appears to be roughly 10% darker than in images taken by the Voyager 2 spacecraft. Also note that the equatorial region is bright, but there is a darker region around the pole. With Triton's long seasons, the southern summer has been progressing, and the south pole has received increasing sunlight; thus, it is probable that much of the frost covering the region in 1989 has evaporated, some of which may have condensed at the equator (hence the bright region there). This image truly pushes the limit of HST's resolving power. The image is centered at roughly 215 degrees latitude.
