Spotlight on Titan for Next Cassini Flyby
November 13, 2007
 

Saturn's moon Titan will be backlit by the sun during Cassini's upcoming flyby on Nov. 19, 2007. Scientists will be looking with much anticipation at the densities of Titan's atmosphere, which were much lower during the last flyby. This flyby marks Cassini's last high-inclination climb, and is considered Cassini's last "mountain climb" of Titan in the nominal mission. By July of 2008, Cassini will be looking down on Saturn from its highest inclinations, greater than 70 degrees.
