Sirens of Titan? Wonder what the Sirens look like? Probably should either crank up the music like Orpheus or put beeswax in one’s ears like the sailors or tie one on like Odysseus. Mythic.

Apod explains:

Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, appears above as a featureless tan as it is continually shrouded in thick clouds. The rings of Saturn are seen as a thin line because they are so flat and imaged nearly edge on. Details of Saturn’s rings are therefore best visible in the dark ring shadows seen across the giant planet’s cloud tops. Since the ring particles orbit in the same plane as Titan, they appear to skewer the foreground moon.
