Titan's Lake District
Since its arrival in orbit at Saturn in 2004, Cassini has flown past Titan more than a hundred times. Numerous radar swaths across Titan have been combined into this gargantuan map of the lakes and hills of its northern polar region. The three largest seas are Punga Mare (closest to the pole), Ligeia Mare, and the biggest, Kraken Mare.
