Artist's rendition of the T-64 flyby

December 22, 2009

The Cassini spacecraft heads north for a close flyby of Titan on Dec. 27, 2009 (Dec. 28 Spacecraft Event Time). During this pass, RADAR gets another view of the north polar lakes, providing an opportunity to measure changes in lake size and other lake characteristics. Other instruments utilize this opportunity to sample the high northern atmosphere as well as to look for possible seasonal changes.
