OK, questions:
1/ Is Ontario Lacus located somewhere within this view?
2/ Are those clouds right of centre?
3/ Are the two related?

Maybe I should add
4/ Are there Ontario images not yet posted on the raw images site?

Possible southern hemisphere cloud north of Ontario Lacus on close approach-wide angle camera images. One image shown with approx location on Celestia grid. Solar System Simulator view of Titan from Cassini at 32.7K km fov of 10 degrees serves as background.

Here's my rudimentary attempt at a RGB view, rotated so that that north is 'up':

And a rough, crescent wide-angle view. North should be at 11 o'clock-ish.

1. Smack dab in the center
2. To the north of Ontario
3. Spatial related, yes
4. Nope, that's all she wrote.

Thanks! Actually I can now see Ontario (one end at least) a bit better on my monitor at home than I could from where I was this morning. Nice to see some clouds again too.

Yes, thanks VP and Nigel for pointing out Ontario. With that info I made another attempt to locate the lake and clouds on the planetary grid.

Cassini find Titan lake like a Namibia mudflat
