If Saturn wasn’t photogenic enough on her lonesome, throw Titan into the mix and success is guaranteed. In this newly-released image, we see just that: a tiny sliver of Saturn, a small section of her rings, with the unassuming silhouette of Titan in the far background.

From this vantage point, this wonderland of a moon looks like a tiny diamond gleaming from the Sun. When, in fact, Titan has a radius of 1,601 miles (2,576 km), which makes it one of the largest moons in our solar system (it’s larger than our own moon, for that matter).
