Low-Res raw Titan Images Posted

Titan images taken by ISS yesterday are now posted on JPL's Cassini Raw Image page. Rather than the movie sequence taken during October and December's Titan flybys, this image sequence was at the same time period but in multiple filters, with and without polarizers. Images taken at 938 nm, like the one linked in the title, show the hemisphere centered in the large bright area known as Xanadu. No clouds were obvious at first glance in these images, but further analysis by ISS scientists will be needed to confirm this.

To look at the new images, go to the JPL Raw images Page, tap on Titan in the target list in the search area on the page, and search for images. The first 22 images are in the latest sequence.
