Proteus

(proh -tee-ŭs, proh -tyooss) The second-largest known satellite of Neptune, measuring 400 km across but irregular in shape, discovered in 1989 during the Voyager 2 flyby. It orbits close to its planet, completing one circuit in about 26 hours at a mean distance of nearly 93 000 km. Its path is almost parallel with Neptune's equator. Proteus has a low albedo (about 0.06) and a large feature, the Southern Hemisphere Depression, which is 250 km in diameter and 10 km deep. There are also troughs, ridges, and several craters. See Table 2, backmatter.
