Cassini Spacecraft Marks 3 Years at Ringed World
Titan lake on left, Lake Superior on right Lakes on Titan
This image compares one of the largest bodies of liquid on the north pole of Saturn's moon Titan (left) with Lake Superior, the largest of North America's Great Lakes (right). The Cassini radar view offers strong evidence for seas on Saturn's largest moon. These seas are most likely liquid methane and ethane.

This feature is at least 100,000 square kilometers (39,000 square miles), which is greater in extent than Lake Superior (82,000 square kilometers or 32,000 square miles).
