Tethys and Titan
Date: 26 Nov 2009

Saturn's moon Tethys with its prominent Odysseus Crater silently slips behind Saturn's largest moon Titan.


Tethys is not actually enshrouded in Titan's atmosphere. Tethys (1,062 km, or 660 miles across) is more than twice as far from Cassini than Titan (5,150 km, or 3,200 miles across) in this sequence. Tethys is 2.2 million km (1.4 million miles) from Cassini. Titan is about 1 million km (621,000 miles) away.
