Titan's Bonestellosphere
"Chesley Bonestell, the father of space art, did a seminal painting in 1948 called 'Saturn as seen from Titan' which inspired a whole generation of space scientists, engineers and astronomers. It showed a rocky, icy surface with a beautiful ringed Saturn through a sapphire sky. Unfortunately, Titan was later found to be cloaked in opaque clouds. Space artist Ron Miller postulated that there must be an area above the cloud layer of Titan where Saturn could still be seen."
