Saturn's Satellite Titan

Saturn's Satellite Titan

Titan's atmosphere makes Saturn's largest satellite look like a fuzzy orange ball in this natural color view from the Cassini spacecraft.Titan's north polar hood is visible at the top of the image, and a faint blue haze also can be detected above the south pole at the bottom of this view. The images used to create this view were obtained with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Jan. 30, 2012 at a distance of approximately 119,000 miles (191,000 kilometers) from Titan.
