Titan is shrouded in a thick atmosphere that makes seeing the surface really hard. But using infrared it is possible to see through the haze to the moon beneath. The Cassini spacecraft did just that, and over the course of 13 years used its Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometre to take infrared views of the surface.

You can see six pictures from the processed data, alongside a visible light view, here: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap180818.html
