The Air Up There
This specially processed composite view reveals a tremendous amount of structure in the northern polar atmosphere of Titan. The hazes in Titan's atmosphere are known to extend hundreds of kilometers above the surface. The structure visible here could be due to multiple detached hazes, or waves in the atmosphere that propagate through stably stratified layers.
The images were taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Jan. 18, 2006.
