Uploader comment: Titan shows us its active polar atmosphere with the north polar hood and south polar vortex both on display in this image captured by the Cassini spacecraft. The north polar hood is visible as the dark cap on the moon's cloud layer at the top of Titan in this image and the south polar vortex is visible as the bright feature at the bottom.
