"[Our philosopher] asserted that he knew the whole secret...[H]e surveyed the two celestial strangers from top to toe, and mantained to their faces that their persons, their worlds, their suns and their stars, were created solely for the use of man. At this assertion our two travelers let themselves fall against each other, seized with a fit of...inextinguishable laughter"

Titan in Infrared, Blue & Ultraviolet Light | Val Klavans
The green-ish areas on the top center correspond to Titan’s vast dune desert, in Belet. Just to the right is a region called Adiri (Huygens landed off the northeastern edge of Adiri in 2005.) In addition, Titan’s south polar vortex can be seen at the bottom of the image.
