You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Tethys at the Edge of Titan

Sort of getting over the whole, “hey, we got two moons in the same frame” thing on the Cassini mission. But this one of Tethys ducking behind Titan’s thick hazy atmosphere kind of looks like a scene from a Star Wars movie.

    Tethys or Mimas doing the ducking?

  2. Chop Shop Store Says:

    That is Tethys. There is a big crater on there as well, just not as deep.

    Thanks. The reason I questioned has to do with the caption of the photo which is “mimastitan.jpg”

  4. thomas Says:

    You mean the filename? I think the original source mislabeled it. The Caption should read “Tethys and Titan” as that is what I get when I roll over it. Are you seeing something else on a PC?

  5. JayDenver Says:

    The rollover caption is indeed “Tethys and Titan” but clicking on the image to view it gives the incorrect filename mentioned above. That’s what confused me originally as noted earlier. Thanks again.
