Titan's south polar vortex in motion
Cassini took 13 snapshots of Titan every 2 hours between 2012-12-15 20:52 UTC and 2012-12-16 20:46 UTC to catch its south polar vortex in motion. The view is looking primarily at the moon's south pole.

Distance ranged from 908 thousand km at the beginning to 1 million km at the end.
