Above and below Titan's atmosphere On the left is a true color image of Titan. The moon's north polar hood is visible in this view. The image on the right is a representation of what it would look like if you could see past Titan's atmosphere and down to its surface. The darker areas are vast hydrocarbon sand dunes and seas.

Both images were taken on June 26, 2013, as it was looking for clouds across Titan’s northern trailing hemisphere. Cassini was about 1.4 million kilometers away, and the images were taken using the RED, GRN, BL1, CB3, CL1 and CL2 filters.
