A new image from Cassini shows band around Saturn’s Moon, Titan.
Only a sharp and careful eye can make out the subtle variations in Titan’s clouds when viewed in visible light. However, these subtle features sometimes become more readily apparent when imaged at other wavelengths of light. This infrared image clearly reveals a band around the Titan’s north pole.
This view looks toward the leading side of Titan. North on Titan is up and rotated 31 degrees to the left.
The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.5 million miles (2.4 million kilometers) from Titan. Image scale is 9 miles (14 kilometers) per pixel.
