Titan Polar Vortex

April 16, 2013
The recently formed south polar vortex stands out in the color-swaddled atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, in this natural color view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

Images taken using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this natural color view. The images were acquired with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on July 25, 2012, at a distance of approximately 64,000 miles (103,000 kilometers) from Titan. Image scale is 4 miles (6 kilometers) per pixel.
