“On December 5, ISS will image a half-phase Titan at a distance of 2.5 million kilometers (1.55 million miles). The camera will image the sub-Saturn hemisphere of the satellite, allowing researchers to continue to study the recent weather changes that have been occurring across Titan's equatorial region and that have brought methane rain to select regions of previously dry terrain”.
Seems a shame the NAC or WAC couldn’t take a few images before Dec 5th say on the second. Based on the SSS it would seem the area in S Senkyo (around 310 W and -20 ) that almost certainly had intense precipitation is better seen on the 2nd below left, and may be beyond the terminator and invisible on the 5th below on right. Also I couldn't confirm with the SSS that Titan would be as close as 2.5 Mkm on the 5th ???

I do believe we *cough* strongly suggested that in our 2009 paper.

Stayed tuned to this channel in the near-future as certainly this story isn't over... ph34r.gif

Thanks for the link actually. It used to be that we had so few papers that I could keep these things straight, what info is in what paper. Let's just say that this is no longer the case... We hint at the connection between the flooding of Arrakis Planitia and the October 2004 storm in the 2009 paper, but we will be making a bigger point of it soon.
