Specular reflection, Titan lakes!

Titan_glint Published last week in the photo journal kept by the robotic emissaries currently touring Eden, the specular reflection captured by Cassini in this image is further proof of liquid lakes on the surface of Titan, a moon with an atmosphere, an active hydrology and host, as well, to the diminutive lander Huygens. The moon has been referred to an organic chemical factory.

At the highly recommended blog Centauri Dreams, Paul Gilster comments on what has quickly become an iconic image.
