Cassini Sees the Sun Set and Rise on Titan

Cassini completed a successful flyby of Titan on June 13, 2007. Scientists took advantage of a rare geometry to take detailed measurements of the atmosphere by imaging the sun as it passes behind Titan and its thick, banded atmosphere.

With its onboard Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph, scientists probed the highest part of Titan's atmosphere.
