Saturn’s Moon, Titan has a gigantic ice cloud at its southern pole! This was spotted by the spacecraft Cassini operated by NASA earlier this month.

Titan has a thick, nitrogen-dominated atmosphere and is the only world in the solar system other than Earth known to possess stable liquid on its surface.

But Titan’s seas are composed of ethane and methane rather than water. Many scientists regard┬áTitan as one of the solar system’s best bets to host alien life.

What types of saurian species might live on Titan?
