Using Gemini North, one half of the International Gemini Observatory, and the SOAR Telescope, both operated by NSF’s NOIRLab, and in collaboration with other global observatories, a team of astronomers observed two chance alignments of Earth, Titan, and a distant bright star to learn about the moon’s atmosphere and build improved models of its winds.
