These images show the south pole of Titan, Saturn's largest moon. The close-up view emphasizes the distinct colored layers of the nitrogen haze for which the moon's uniquely dense atmosphere is known. The wide-angle shot (taken a few seconds later) shows the haze in the context of the large moon. Filters on the cameras were used to show the haze in its natural colors.
Astronomers attribute the color difference to particle size. The blue haze occurs in the moon's high altitude, where particles are likely smaller. The orange haze is probably the result of larger particles in Titan's main atmosphere.
