Titania (Uranus). Solar System Satellites

Titania is the largest satellite on the planet Uranus, the seventh of our Solar System. Almost in all probability it is formed by rock - which is concentrated in the outer part or mantle - and ice, which is mainly in the interior (core). It has a diameter of approximately 1,600 kilometers, its surface, full of craters produced by meteor impacts, sometimes has a very slight red color, and possibly has a very thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide.

Titania is one of the great satellites of our Solar System, specifically the eighth largest. It takes 8.7 days to go around Uranus, and exactly the same time to go around its axis, so, like the Moon with the Earth, it only shows one face to the planet.

Titania has a surface full of geographical accidents, both from meteorite impacts and from the satellite's own processes. Canyons, steep areas, tectonic graves and craters make up the landscape of Titania, confirming that it is a celestial body that had a great geological activity.
