A mosaic of Titan

Like an ancient mariner charting the coastline of an unexplored wilderness, Cassini's repeated encounters with Titan are turning a mysterious world into a more familiar place.

During a Titan flyby on Oct. 28, 2005, the spacecraft's narrow-angle camera acquired multiple images that were combined to create the mosaic presented here. Provisional names applied to Titan's features are shown; an unlabelled version of the mosaic is also available (see http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov . The Cassini imaging team homepage is at http://ciclops.org .
