During this flyby the Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) will be prime at closest approach and will observe the north-pole northern lake region. A mosaic of Kraken Mare may be obtained if the north polar hood, which recently vanished, does not reappear before the flyby. A mosaic of an area north of Adiri will be obtained at a resolution of 10 kilometers per pixel.
