Vuver is a crater on the surface of Uranus' moon Umbriel.[1] It is estimated to be 98 km in diameter.[2] The longitude and latitude of its center are 311.6° and −4.7°, respectively.[2]

Vuver has a bright central peak,[1][clarification needed]]] which is one of the few bright albedo features on Umbriel that really stands out against Umbriel's low albedo.[3]

The crater is named after Vuver, a Volga Finns evil spirit.[2]
