Titan, Saturn’s Largest Moon

| 8 Comments

We have spent the first part of our school year learning about the Solar System. We learned a ton about the phases of our Moon. Here are a few pictures.

Then we decided to look more closely at another planet’s moon, Titan. Here is what we learned about Titan:

  • Titan is the second largest moon in our solar system.
  • It is covered by a dense atmosphere that is mostly nitrogen.
  • It was discovered in 1655 by Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens.
  • Titan is about 759,000 miles from Saturn.
  • Titan takes 15 days and 22 hours to complete a full orbit of Saturn, and about 29 Earth years to orbit the Sun.
  • The surface is approximately minus 290 Fahrenheit.
  • Titan has clouds, rain, rivers, lakes and seas, but they are unlike ours. They are made of liquid gases like methane and ethane.
  • Although it has similarities to a planet, it is not one!

Here are our pictures labeled with lot’s of great facts!

What can you share with us about Titan?

Do you think it is possible there is live on Titan?

  1. Moore’s Class,
    This was such an interesting post. Thank you for sharing these facts. I love learning something new each day no matter how old you are! Keep up the good work.

  2. I don’t think you can live on Titan because when you hit the atmosphere you would technically get a whole body burn. Then you will die.

  3. That’s a cool video on starun that turned out great.

  4. You made a really good blog.

  5. Good job on organizing your blog. It has a lot of activities.

  6. This was great how you went more in depth in learning about the planets and learned about the moon of mars. But I only have one question it was that you said that titan was the 2nd largest moon in the solar system so what is the first largest?

  7. I liked this video; it was very interesting and I learned a lot from it.

  8. Great job on making pictures all about Titan. I learned so much about Titan!
