Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, is the only satellite in the Solar System with a substantial atmosphere. The atmosphere is poorly understood and obscures the surface, leading to intense speculation about Titan's nature. Here we present observations of Titan from the imaging science experiment onboard the Cassini spacecraft that address some of these(More)
Observations from the Cassini Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer show an anomalously bright spot on Titan located at 80 degrees W and 20 degrees S. This area is bright in reflected light at all observed wavelengths, but is most noticeable at 5 microns. The spot is associated with a surface albedo feature identified in images taken by the Cassini(More)
Introduction: Since shortly before Saturn Orbit Insertion in July 2004, the Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) onboard the Cassini spacecraft has been mapping the surface of Titan and monitoring cloud features in Titan's atmosphere [1]. Prior to the arrival of Cassini, the only information on the distribution of albedo patterns on the surface of Titan came(More)
