If you like sitting on the shore and watching the sun light set over the sea, checkout a glimpse of  sunlight reflecting off Titan hydrocarbon seas that NASA's Cassini spacecraft caught this week. Titan is the largest moon of Saturn, the second largest in the Solar System (after Ganymede of Jupiter). It was discovered by Christiaan Huygens in 1655. Here are 5 interesting facts about Titan: -You could fly in its sky - Titan has thick atmosphere, low gravity  and reasonable surface pressure, which means by flapping a pair of wings strapped to your arms,    you could fly in its skies with no more effort than walking. - It’s the only other planet with liquid (that we know of). - It has a climate system like Earth. - The Saturn-orbiting spacecraft Cassini carried with it the Huygens probe, landed on Titan (our only landing in the outer Solar System) on 14 January 2005. There are proposals being discussed for another landing, this time possibly using a boat. -Titan is bigger than Mercury.
