When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona

Hubble: Quadruple moons transiting Saturn. The giant orange moon Titan, at the top right is larger than the planet Mercury, and the second largest moon in the solar system after Jupiter’s moon Ganymede. Titan is the only moon in our solar system known to have a dense atmosphere, and the only place other than Earth where stable bodies of surface liquid have been found. Three icy moons are also visible, with Enceladus and Dione at the left and Mimas on the far right.
