The Cassini spacecraft will perform a southern hemisphere pass of Titan's surface on Dec. 5, 2007. The infrared camera will perform high-resolution imaging of a dark region called Ontario Lacus, which may be a large lake, first spotted by the imaging cameras in 2005. The Huygens probe landing site will also be imaged.
