Saturnís hazy moon Titan

Saturnís hazy moon Titan

Fig. 10.23 . The murky orange disk of Titan as it passes in front of Saturn and just below the planetís rings. Titanís photochemical smog completely obscures the moonís surface. High-altitude hazes are visible against the disk of Saturn, attenuating light reflected by the planet. Images taken at red, green and blue wavelengths have been combined to create this natural color view, taken on 1 August 2007 from the Cassini spacecraft. (Courtesy of NASA/JPL/SSI.)
