Titan. Mosaic of near-infrared images from Cassini, showing lakes on Titan’s north pole. They are the dark splotches and speckles scattered around the pole. Titan’s lakes are filled with liquid methane and ethane, organic compounds which are gases on Earth but liquids on cold Titan (-180º C).

Soaring Over Titan: Extraterrestrial Land of Lakes. Data from the Cassini spacecraft’s radar instrument was used for this 3-D flyover of the hydrocarbon lakes & seas at the north pole region, starting at Kraken Mare. The vertical heights are exaggerated tenfold and the data has been colorized, both for visual effect.
