SUMMARY: This false colour composite image of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, was taken by Cassini on April 16 during its recent flyby. It was created by combining two infrared images of Titan with a visible light image. The green represents places where Cassini could see down to the surface, red indicates areas high in Titan's atmosphere, and blue shows the moon's outer edge. The images were taken when Cassini was approximately 160,000 km (100,000 miles) away.
