Using near-infrared light, these images reveal the surface with unusual clarity. This colour image shows a false-colour combination of three previous images taken with different colour filters. The yellow areas correspond to the hydrocarbon-rich regions, while the green areas are the icier regions. Here, the methane cloud appears white, as it is bright in all three colours. A circular feature that may be a crater is visible in the north.
