Cassini to Image Huygens Landing Site

Cassini to Image Huygens Landing Site flyby 41 Artist concept of Titan flyby. Image credit: NASA/JPL A little more than three years after the Huygens probe landed on Saturn's moon Titan, Cassini's radar instrument will get another look at the area where it landed during a flyby on Feb. 22. This area was previously viewed with radar but with less resolution. Having radar data of this area from two flybys may provide valuable information about its topography. Radar will also image Hotei Arcus, which appears as a bright spot to Cassini's infrared cameras. Having radar coverage over this region might shed light on this mysterious spot.
