Color image of Saturn's largest satellite Titan from 4.5 million km

Voyager 1 image of Saturn's largest satellite, Titan. This image has been adjusted to recreate the true color of Titan's clouds as closely possible. The southern hemisphere is noticeably brighter and shows a well-defined boundary at the equator. The north polar region at top appears very dark. Titan is 5,150 km in diameter. (Voyager 1, P-23076)
