Titan is the HUGE yellowish orb — too big to be fitted, per scale, in this diagram.

Titan is marked with the ‘T’.

So neat. Discovered ahead of Uranus — the first planet discovered with a telescope.

That Titan is the second largest Moon in the Solar System (to date) helped, Jupiter’s ‘Ganymede’, discovered 45 years earlier being the largest.
