Titan Haze
Date: 12 Nov 1980

Layers of haze covering Saturn's satellite Titan are seen in this image taken by Voyager 1 on 12 November 1980 at a range of 22,000 km (13,700 miles). The colors are false and are used to show details of the haze that covers Titan. The upper level of the thick aerosol above the satellite's limb appears orange. The divisions in the haze occur at altitudes of 200, 375 and 500 km (124, 233 and 310 miles) above the limb of the moon.
