The Cassini spacecraft has spied the tallest mountains yet seen on Titan, Saturn's major moon.

The range is about 150km long (93 miles), 30km (19 miles) wide and about 1.5km (nearly a mile) high.

The feature was identified by the probe on a recent pass, using a combination of radar and infrared data.

Dr Bob Brown, one of the scientists behind the discovery, said it reminded him of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the western US.

Here's the best part:

"The mountains appear to be coated with layers of organic, or carbon-rich, material. This could be methane "snow"."

Sure wish I had a cup of it.
