Cassini radar sees sand dunes in Belet on Saturn's giant moon Titan (lower photo) that are sculpted like Namibian sand dunes on Earth (upper photo). The bright features in the lower radar photo are not clouds but topographic features among the dunes.

Titan (the largest of Saturn's moons) is currently the only other world besides Earth known to have stable bodies of liquid on its surface, but unlike Earth, Titan’s lakes aren’t filled with water — instead they’re full of liquid methane and ethane, organic compounds which are gases on Earth but liquids in Titan’s incredibly chilly -290º F (-180º C) environment. - Credit: (NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI)
