Titan Haze
[For trouble viewing the images/movies on this page, go here]
Layers of haze covering Saturn's satellite Titan are seen in this image taken by Voyager 1 on Nov. 12, 1980 at a range of 22,000 kilometers (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 kilometers (124, 233 and 310 miles) above the limb of the moon.

The Voyager Project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
