Cassini and Titan Play 'Peek-a-Boo' on Latest Flyby

Titan, from Mar. 26, 2007 flyby

Cassini completed a successful flyby of Titan on Mon., March 26. The spacecraft passed behind Titan for approximately 35 minutes. This is called an occultation, and it's Cassini's version of "peek-a-boo." A signal from the spacecraft, bounced off Titan's surface and received on Earth, will tell scientists more about Titan's surface.
