past-Neptune spacecraft Voyager 2 are Naiad, Thalassa, Despina,

Larissa, Galatea and Proteus. In 2002 and later, Halimede,

Psamathe, Laomedia and Nero were discovered.

As of now, the count for known satellites of nearer-than-Neptune

Ambriel were discovered. Miranda was observed in 1948. Voyager 2

discovered 10 more in 1986 Subsequently, others were discovered.
