Nightfall Over Titan

1999. Acrylic on stretched canvas. 18"x36".

The giant moon Titan reigns as king of Saturn's horde of icy satellites. Larger than the planets Pluto and Mercury, Titan is second only to Jupiter's moon Ganymede as the largest of the 100+ known moons in our solar system.

A reddish, smoggy atmosphere completely enshrouds this big moon and prevents any glimpse of the sky beyond. In this view high above the clouds and haze we see the giant planet Saturn and several of its inner moons.
