crescent view of Titan Titan's Crescent
This crescent view of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, was taken during a flyby on July 22, 2006. The Cassini spacecraft was 15,700 kilometers (9,700 miles) away from Titan at the time.

Two images from the spacecraft's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer were combined to create this view.
