A long river which appears to be guided by a faultline has been imaged recently on Titan. The radar image shows that the river is over 400 km long and does contain liquid through its whole length, from its source to its end at Kraken Mare, the largest sea on Titan. The river has been compared to Earth's Nile river for some of their shared characteristics.

Wonderful new backlit mosaic of Saturn, only the second one ever taken. Enceladus and Tethys are visible (Enceladus is embedded in the diffuse blue E Ring). Not natural color. Click for high res.

I made a few quick adjustments to it to try to better simulate natural color. Click for full res.



EDIT: I altered the above image a bit, and also made a brighter version (below)

ESA has released a new visualization of the Huygens landing on Titan on 14 January 2005 based on detailed data from the probe. The visualization shows the landing from multiple perspectives including that of the probe, and is accurate to reality in almost every small detail.

How many moons can you spot in this animation focused on the E ring? My guess would be 8.
