Titan Images 2024

The image in the upper part of the table represents a raw view of Titan acquired from the Cassini orbiter on December 1st 2012. The view whose file name is N00198575.jpg was obtained on the basis of the CL1 filter and on the basis of the CB3 filter. The image had not been validated or calibrated at the time of the observation and a validated or calibrated version of the original image had to be archived with the Planetary Data System proposed by NASA. One can notice, in particular, a vortex in the upper part of the disk close to the terminator. The view in the lower part of the table represents a colorized version of the original image.

The image above represents a portion of a radar swath obtained from the Cassini orbiter during the T41 flyby performed on February 22, 2008. The file name of the original radar image is BIFQI35S109_D161_T041S01_V03.jpg. Each side of the radar portion represents approximately 100 kilometers. A relatively round feature can be observed. Is that feature a portion of a cryovolcano or is that feature the outcome of an impact event ?

The image in the upper part of the table reveals a raw view of a portion of Titan obtained from the Cassini orbiter on December 4, 2007. The image whose file name is W00039714.jpg was acquired on the basis of the CB3 filter and on the basis of the CL2 filter. The view had not been validated or calibrated at the time of the observation and a validated or calibrated version of the original image was going to be archived with the Planetary Data System proposed by NASA. One can notice a sharp contrast between relatively bright areas and relatively dark areas. The image in the lower part of the table represents a colorized version of the original image.
