Titan imaged on June 11th displays Senkyo and Belet regions in this most recent distant view after the storm. Perhaps a hint of brightenings along the path of the Sept 2010 arrow storm remain. Kraken appears in the hazy north. Imaged rotated 60 degrees clockwise and enhanced.

The post storm Senkyo images of Dec 20 2010 are now available in the PDS archive. The PDS versions are used for the close-up views comparing the pre 3/21/2009 and post 12/20/2010 ISS images from just under 1M km. Additional darkened areas seem visible (small yellow arrows). The larger area noted last year (larger yellow arrow) is quite evident. The dark areas may represent places of methane rain accumulation. The ISS basemap shows the area in high resolution pre-storm; small dark albedo areas (yellow circle) exist which appear to localize with some of the darks spots post storm.
