The University of Arizona's Erich Karkoschka found the moon in using public Voyager 2 images and comparing them to some taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.
At first, the IAU designated it a moon, but then rescinded that when other astronomers couldn't find it. Perdita was made official again in when Hubble spotted it again.

Caliban , found by a team at the Palomar Observatory in , moves in an inclined opposite orbit to the rotation of Uranus. The same team also found Sycorax , which appears red in telescopes and also has a retrograde orbit. The latest finds took place in Hubble spotted Mab and Cupid , while and Margaret was found using the Subaru 8. With no spacecraft visiting Uranus in the near future and its sheer distance from the Earth, the potential for observations of its moons is limited.
That said, there have been several scientific examinations of the system in recent years, as well as proposals to send spacecraft there in the distant future.
Some astronomers envision using small cubesats to reduce the cost of getting a spacecraft out that far, while still returning valuable science. A team also submitted a Uranus Pathfinder orbiter mission concept to the European Space Agency in , and again in , but neither concept was accepted for funding. With the realization from Cassini observations that so many of Saturn's moons may have subsurface oceans, some astronomers have suggested that Uranus' moons could be host to oceans as well. The possibilities for life may be more limited because the moon is that much more distant from the sun, but it is hard to say for sure without doing detailed examination of the moons.
Some observations of the moons have been performed from Earth. In , a group probed Miranda for evidence of volatiles such as ammonia hydrate , and could not exclude the possibility from their observations.

A Icarus publication based on Uranus system observations suggested that several of Uranus' moons have a mix of water and carbon dioxide ice on their surfaces. Separately, a model of Miranda in the journal Geology suggested that its strange surface could at least in part have come by tidal heating , which created slow convection on the icy surface. He estimated that the moons, if they exist, are likely smaller than 3 miles 5 kilometers in radius.graphql.muchmore.be/un-tripulante-llamado-murphy-santander-elba-santander-en.php

This book assesses the origin of asteroids by analyzing the discovery of Vesta in Cunningham studies that idea in detail through the writings of Sir David Brewster in Scotland, the era's most prolific writer about the asteroids. He also examines the link between meteorites and asteroids, revealing a synergy between Ernst Chladni, Romantic symbolism, and the music of the spheres.
With a synoptic look at the four asteroids, Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta, Cunningham provides a valuable resource on asteroid origins and explains how they were integrated into the newly revealed solar system of the early nineteenth century.
