Titanian Sunglint

The hard-working Cassini orbiter has spotted "sunglint" off the seas of Titan. Think about that for a few seconds. A multi-year mission to Saturn, a ringed gas giant in our system has seen sun glinting through the thick organic-chemical clouds of a very cold Earth-analogue.

Sometimes we are just a tad blase about the times we live in.
