The Cassini spacecraft has been moving progressively over Titan's southern hemisphere and flew by Titan on Oct. 2, 2007. During this flyby, Cassini's radar instrument imaged the surface.

This is the radar instrument's southernmost flyby to date. The next few radar passes should bring the spacecraft closer to the south pole. Scientists will be on the hunt for lakes or seas to see if they are as prevalent here as they are at the north pole.
