Seas on Titan

Credit: NASA/JPL

Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, the second largest in the Solar System (after Ganymede of Jupiter). It was discovered by Christiaan Huygens in 1655.

Data from Cassini-Huygens. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, ESA and the Italian Space Agency (ASI). The seas consist most likely of liquid methane and ethane.

Nice :-)
