(MSNBC) - In one of the most distant weather reports ever received, clouds and even rain showers seem to have been spotted on Titan, Saturnís largest moon. Along with vast seas and modest mountains, a picture is emerging of a place more like Earth than anywhere else in the solar system.

Titan is a cold, dark, smog-shrouded world larger than the planet Mercury and nearly half as big as Earth. Known for decades as the only moon in the solar system with an atmosphere, Titan has many of the raw materials for life, including nitrogen, carbon and water.
