[1] Spatially resolved near-infrared spectra of Titan, which simultaneously cover two CH4 absorption bands (from 1.45 to 2.45 mm), have been obtained using the SINFONI integral-field spectrometer with adaptive optics at the Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the European Southern Observatory. We observe the enhancement in 2 mm surface albedo of the ‘‘5 mm bright spot’’ at 80 W and 24 S, and find an analogously bright region at 2 mm near 88 W and 6 S. Surface albedos are recovered at 60 mas (375 km… CONTINUE READING
