New Titan Image: Jumbled Terrain

CICLOPS has released this newly processed, high resolution view of Titan's surface taken during the April 16 flyby of Titan. This view shows an area on the western side of a bright feature nicknamed "Java". This region is characterized by a complex pattern bright and dark terrain, with dark patches ranging in size from 20 to 40 km in diameter. These spots appear more complex than the putative crater-related dark spots highlighted in another release today. The RADAR SAR swath from T3 in February covered parts of this area on their far eastern end so some joint investigation of this region is possible.
