Cassini and Titan -- July 22, 2006 flyby

July 18, 2006

After revealing a land of mountains and river channels near Titan's equator in April, Cassini's radar will illuminate the high northern reaches of Titan during the next flyby on July 21, 2006 (July 22 UTC). In winter's shadow since the arrival of Cassini in 2004, Titan's northern terrain could harbor methane lakes, which shrink in summer and expand in winter.
