Finally, the cluster analysis of the major satellites of Uranus indicates that they consist of a larger group of four and Miranda, with the former comprising two sub-groups of (1) Ariel and Umbriel; and (2) Titania and Oberon.
For example, the Uranian satellite Miranda has an anomalously large inclination of 4deg, which is thought to be the result of a chaotic passage through the 3:1 resonance with Umbriel at some time in its orbital history.
