Saturn from Titan orbit
This is how Saturn and Titan might look from a position in orbit around Titan. While in reality Saturn is vastly larger than Titan, it appears smaller here because Titan's orbit puts Saturn at a distance of about 700 thousand miles.
Sunlight filtering through Titan's upper atmospheric haze--extending over 300 miles above the surface--gives a bluish cast to its limb.
