Cassini to Fly by Smog-Cloaked Titan

Cassini's powerful radar, which can see through Titan's many haze layers, will image across an optically-bright, continent-size region of Titan known as Xanadu on April 30, 2006.

It is unclear whether Xanadu is a mountain range, giant basin, smooth plain, or a combination of all three.
