Titan Images 2020

 

The image in the upper part of the table reveals a raw image of Titan's disk obtained from the Cassini spacecraft on December 15, 2011. The file name of the view is N00179043.jpg. The view of Saturn's largest moon was acquired using the CL1 filter and the CB3 filter. The view had not been validated or calibrated at the time of the release and a validated or calibrated image was going to be archived with the Planetary Data System proposed by NASA. One can clearly notice landscape features and a sharp contrast between bright areas and dark areas. Surface features on Titan can be discerned or identified in the infrared or near-infrared spectrum. The view in the lower part of the table shows a colorized version of the original image.
