Titan's Seas

Saturn's moon Titan is one of surprises and scientific mysteries. It has lakes (methane/natural gas) and a very active weather system, including rain (natural gas/methane).

This spectacular image of Titan Seas at APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day) notes that the feature was "annoying and also useful to scientists." It made me pause, think the ingenuity of scientists, technologists, engineers, and computer scientists making it possible to look through clouds to "see" what is going on at the surface.
