Scrutinizing Titan's Surface

Great Britain

CICLOPS has released a montage of images showing interesting surface features found during the Ta and Tb flybys. One of the images, shown above, shows a feature informally called Great Britain due to its resemblance of the earthly island. This feature is complete surrounded by dark material. Dark channels cross cut this feature, perhaps similar to channels seen near the landing site. Speaking of the landing site, one of the frames in the montage does show the best orbital view thus far of the landing site. Other frames include a detailed look at the foundary between bright and dark terrain to the east and south east of Great Britain, sapping features southwest of Great Britain, and interesting features in the "Aegean Sea" region.
