Neptune Ring Arcs and Moons (Unannotated)

This unannotated image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope shows five moons of Neptune, as well as ring arcs of the Neptunian ring system. Thalassa is the white dot on the left. Galatea, Despina and Larissa are the dots to the right. The faint dot in the upper right (above the three moons) is another moon of Neptune designated S/2004 N1. S/2004 N1 was discovered in July 2013 from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope between the years 2004 to 2009.
