Cassini-Huygens
Titan Lake Sunlight
04/28/10

 

This image shows the flash of sunlight reflected off a lake on Saturn’s moon Titan. The northern hemisphere of Titan was shrouded in darkness for nearly 15 years, but the Sun began to illuminate the area again as it approached its spring equinox in August 2009. By comparing the image to radar and near-infrared light images, Cassini scientists were able to correlate the reflection with the large Titan lake called Kraken Mare.
