ALMA image of the distribution of the organic molecule HC3N at intermediate-to-lower elevations in the atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan. The denser, brighter concentrations are oriented more evenly about the poles than is observed for HC3N at higher elevations. The globe outline represents Titan’s orientation at the time of the observations.
