Cassini captured some distant views of Titan on January 31, 2009. As northern spring approached, the cameras were finally obtaining unmistakable images of the dark outlines of the methane-ethane seas that Cassini's RADAR instrument had discovered, including the gigantic Kraken mare, visible at the top of this view.
