Titan's Arrow Storm
Filed under weather and climate
After this storm dissipated, Cassini observed significant changes on Titan's surface at the southern boundary of the dune field named Belet. Those changes covered an area of 500,000 square kilometers, or roughly the combined areas of Arizona and Utah. The part of the storm that is visible here measures 1,200 kilometers in length east-to-west. The wings of the storm that trail off to the northwest and southwest from the easternmost point of the storm are each 1,500 kilometers long.
