 Titania   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
All of Uranus' large moons are a mixture of about 40-50% water ice with the rest rock, a somewhat larger fraction of rock than Saturn's large moons such as Rhea.
Titania's surface is a mixture of cratered terrain and systems of interconnected valleys hundreds of kilometers long.
Titania's surface is clearly relatively young (though older than some such as Enceladus); obviously some sort of resurfacing processes have been at work.

Titania should not be confused with Titan, a moon of Saturn, or the asteroid 593 Titania.
Titania was discovered on 1787-01-11 by William Herschel.
The name "Titania" and the names of all four satellites of Uranus then known were suggested by Herschel's son John Herschel in 1852 at the request of William Lassell, who had discovered Ariel and Umbriel the year before ([1]).

An interesting feature of Titania is that with the diameter of about 1600 kilometers (which almost equals half the diameter of our Moon!).
Detecting Titania's movement by Herschel and comparing the shifts with the changes in the position of Uranus allowed him to determine that it is a true satellite (and not a distant body only projected on the plane of sight).
Titania is the brightest of Uranian moons (exactly 1,000 times fainter than the faintest stars visible to naked eye).

The large Uranian moons appear, in fact, to be about 50 percent water ice, 20 percent carbon- and nitrogen-based materials, and 30 percent rock.
Titania, for example, is marked by huge fault systems and canyons that indicate some degree of geologic activity in its history.
Voyager images, which showed some areas of the moon at resolutions of a kilometer or less, consists of huge fault canyons as deep as 20 kilometers (12 miles), terraced layers and a mixture of old and young surfaces.

The Moon is one of the larger natural satellites with a diameter of 2,160 miles.
The moons are 120,000 miles and 131,000 miles from the center of planet Saturn between the moons Mimas and Enceladus.
The smallest moon is Deimos, at Mars, only seven miles in diameter, although its size now is rivaled by the small shepherd moons discovered by Cassini at Saturn and by others yet to be counted and named in the rings around Jupiter, Saturn and other giant gas planets in the outer Solar System.

 St Agatha Astronomy Group- Uranus
Although the moon is a little under three hundred miles in diameter, the ridge shown in the picture is taller than Mount Everest here on Earth.
If this is the case, some of the ice in the moon may have melted and smoothed out the surface of the moon and then more recent geological activity may have formed the long, wide grooves we see in the picture.
Another thing that Titania has in common with its family members is the fact that part of its surface is heavily cratered, and part of it has lots of ridges, gullies and other features that look like erosion features that we see here on Earth and on Mars.

 On This and Other Moons
If the sizes of the moons are expressed relative to their primary (the planet they orbit) there are still more surprises.
Being close to Jupiter (it is the innermost of the Galilean moons) the planet's massive gravity stretches the moon by some 100m and locks its rotation so the same side always faces the planet.
But nearby moons Europa and Ganymede peturb it when they pass, making the tidal bulges shift and heating the Io's interior with the friction of the flexing.

 Distance from Uranus to Titania
Titania revolves in the equatorial plane of Uranus.
According to the Almanac on Dec. 20, 1997 (UT), the angular separation between Uranus and Titania was 20 arcseconds.
Using principles of trigonometry, the tangent of the angle Uranus-Earth-Titania (which is also their angular separation) is equal to the distance between Titania and Uranus (D) divided by the distance between Earth and Uranus (20.6 AU).

 Tour of the Solar System: Ariel
The most striking feature of Ariel is the complex network of deep rift valleys crisscrossing the entire surface of the moon.
They cross the entire surface of the moon for hundreds of miles (or kilometers), and reach depths of 6 miles (10 km).
Some of these valleys have ridges, which are believed to have been formed by upwellings of ice from the moon's interior.

Titania and Oberon are each 1600 kilometers in diameter, the largest size of the five (clue 2).
If the brightest moon were 1190 kilmeters in diameter then the moon with deep rift valleys would be 1630 km in diameter (clue 5), which is impossible (clue 2); so the blandest moon is 1190 km in diameter (clue 3).
Titania isn't the brightest moon (because the moon with deep rift valleys is larger - clues 2 and 5), so it's the moon with deep rift valleys, and by elimination the second moon is the brightest.
