Astronomy Science ~ Pictured above is a stunning image of the oceans in the other world.
NASA released this mosaic that shows the reflection of sunlight in polar seas of Titan, one of Saturn's moons.

Near-infrared image shows the sun bouncing Cassini of Titan's north polar seas. Is like a mirror reflection is known as specular point, located in the largest sea south Titans, Kraken Mare.

This sea is composed of mostly methane and ethane. While the rest of Titan's surface is mostly covered by sand dunes.

Near-infrared images taken by Cassini show the reflection of sunlight on the surface of Titan ocean, Kraken Mare
On the right side of the Sun reflected light is yellow, the image also captures a few bright methane clouds. It may be that these clouds produce rain of liquid methane, keeping the polar oceans remain unfilled. And the bright lines that surround the sea ("ring-like") can represent the original line of the sea, indicating that this could shrink the size of the sea from time to time.
