NASA has released a mosaic combining six images — two each of red, green and blue spectral filters — to create this natural color view of the large moon Titan orbiting the planet Saturn. The images were obtained with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on 6 May 2012, at a distance of approximately 483,000 miles (778,000 kilometers) from Titan. The rings of saturn have cast a shadow on the planet. The bluish hue is thought due to the intensity of ultraviolet light and the haze it produces. This changes according with the seasons for each hemisphere.
