It’s time once again for another Where In The Universe Challenge. Test your visual knowledge of the cosmos by naming where in the Universe this image was taken and give yourself extra points if you can name the spacecraft responsible for this picture. Post your guesses in the comments section, and check back on later at this same post to find the answer. To make this challenge fun for everyone, please don’t include links or extensive explanations with your answer. Good luck!
UPDATE: The answer is now posted below.
This is a lake on Titan. It iis part of a larger image taken by the Cassini radar instrument during a flyby of Saturn’s moon Titan on Sept. 23, 2006. It shows clear shorelines that look eerily like lakes here on Earth. But with Titan’s colder temperatures and hydrocarbon-rich atmosphere, however, the lakes likely contain a combination of methane and ethane, not water. No skinny dipping allowed!
Check back next week for another test of your visual knowledge of the cosmos!
