Title:Composite Image Shows Infrared View of Saturn\'s Moon Titan from NASA\'s Cassini Spacecraft

Description: This composite image shows an infrared view of Saturn\'s moon Titan from NASA\'s Cassini spacecraft, acquired during the mission\'s \"T-114\" flyby on Nov. 13, 2015. The spacecraft\'s visual and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIMS) instrument made these observations, in which blue represents wavelengths centered at 1.3 microns, green represents 2.0 microns, and red represents 5.0 microns. A view at visible wavelengths (centered around 0.5 microns) would show only Titan\'s hazy atmosphere (as in PIA14909). The near-infrared wavelengths in this image allow Cassini\'s vision to penetrate the haze and reveal the moon\'s surface. During this Titan flyby, the spacecraft\'s closest-approach altitude was 6,200 miles (10,000 kilometers), which is considerably higher than those of typical flybys, which are around 750 miles (1,200 kilometers). The high flyby allowed VIMS to gather moderate-resolution views over wide areas (typically at a few kilometers per pixel). The view looks toward terrain that is mostly on the Saturn-facing hemisphere of Titan. NASA Photo
