Global view of Titan through the CB3 filter

Global view of Titan through the CB3 filter
Global view of Titan through the CB3 filter This view of Titan was taken by Cassini on March 29, 2007 through a filter, "CB3," that sees a wavelength of light at which methane is relatively transparent. The cameras can see through Titan's thick atmosphere to the dark-and-light patterns on the surface. Very faintly visible near the terminator (day-night boundary) at the top of the image are a few dark features that may be hydrocarbon lakes. NASA / JPL-Caltech / SSI
