Belinda is the tenth moon in order of distance from Uranus. It is named after the heroine of Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock and is also called Uranus XIV. Belinda was discovered by Voyager scientist Stephen P. Synnott from images sent back by Voyager 2 on January 13, 1986 and was given the temporary designation S/1986 U5. Based on light curves and direct imaging, Belinda appears to be a very elongated object.
