In 2006, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft obtained these false-color images of a circular feature in a region known as Xanadu on Saturn’s moon Titan. The images, obtained by visual and infrared mapping spectrometer, show Titan in infrared wavelengths of radiation. The cause of this circular feature has been the subject of debate, but a group of Cassini scientists think a small asteroid or a comet could have caused an impact that excavated an enormous crater.
