The two moons - designated 1986U7 and 1986U8 - are seen here on either side of the bright epsilon ring; all nine of the known Uranian rings are visible.
The discovery of the two ring moons 1986U7 and 1986U8 is a major advance in our understanding of the structure of the Uranian rings and is in good agreement with theoretical predictions of how these narrow rings are kept from spreading out.
Based on likely surface brightness properties, the moons are of roughly 20- and 30-km diameter, respectively.

 Cornell News: Uranus moons Cordelia and Ophelia are found
The moons were discovered in January of 1986 through images sent back to Earth by Voyager II, and the official announcement was made Jan. 27, 1986, the day before the Challenger accident.
Cordelia and Ophelia are so small -- estimated to be 20 to 30 miles in diameter -- and so far away -- more than 1.7 billion miles from our sun -- that even the powerful Hubble Space Telescope has had trouble seeing them.
But because the observations from Voyager II spanned less than two weeks, it was impossible for astronomers to predict, with useful accuracy, where Ophelia and Cordelia would be in their orbits a decade later.
