Saturn's moon Titan is the second largest moon of the solar system and was first discovered by Christiaan Huygens in 1655. Titan is bigger than Mercury and Pluto but the same size as our Earth. The temperature is a rather cold -289 degrees F on the surface. It has an orange hue (really thick clouds) which is made from the air of nitrogen. Since the clouds are so thick, spacecrafts have yet to study the surface of Titan, though The Voyager has attempted. Only 10 percent of sunlight reaches this moon's surface. The colors that you see on Titan are concidered "false colors" like blue, red, green, and pink.
