This view of Titan was taken from a position looking almost directly back toward the Sun. Titan's hydrocarbon-rich nitrogen atmosphere scatters sunlight in a forward direction over the limb around the entire disk. The surface of Titan is obscured by a deep cloud layer. The only visible markings are the dark north polar hood and a difference in the brightness and color in the north and south hemispheres.
