Titan Surface Projections

Titan images obtained with NACO on November 26th, 2002. Left : Titan's surface projection on the trailing hemisphere as observed at 1.3 μm, revealing a complex brightness structure thanks to the high image contrast of about 40%. Right : a new, possibly meteorological, phenomenon observed at 2.12 μm in Titan's atmosphere, in the form of a bright feature revolving around the South Pole.
