Titan 'T5' Flyby Images

Cassiniís April 16 flyby of Titan yielded intriguing views of a new hemisphere not previously imaged at high resolution in earlier flybys.

May 2, 2005: Jumbled Terrain - High-resolution images taken during Cassini's latest close encounter with Titan provide still more examples of the complicated relationships between the dark and bright materials on Titan's surface.
May 2, 2005: Channels on Titan? - It's hard not to speculate about the origins of the narrow, dark features seen in Cassini's new images of Titan's surface.
May 2, 2005: Angular Bright Spot - A new image of Titan taken by Cassini provides a closer, clearer view of an interesting bright feature surrounded by darker material.
May 2, 2005: Dark Spots on Titan - This recent image of Titan reveals more complex patterns of bright and dark
regions on the surface, including an intriguing small dark circular feature, completely surrounded by brighter material.
May 2, 2005: Bright-Dark Boundary Close-up - Images of Titan's surface from Cassini's latest flyby continue to reveal the incredibly intricate nature of the boundaries between dark and bright material.
