In the true color photo above which taken on May 21, 2011, the colorful globe of Titan passes in front of Saturn and its rings. The north polar hood can be seen on Titan and appears as a detached layer at the top of the moon here. This view looks toward the northern, sunlit side of the rings from just above the ring plane. Images taken using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this natural color view. The images were obtained with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera.
