Cassini RADAR swath on Titan, flyby Ta, October 26, 2004
Cassini RADAR swath on Titan, flyby Ta, October 26, 2004 This swath is about 4,500 kilometers (2,800 miles) long, subtending 120 degrees of longitude on Titan. It extends from 133 degrees west longitude and 32 degrees north latitude through 12 degrees west and 29 degrees north. This was the first RADAR swath on Titan. It contains possible cryovolcanic structure Ganesa Macula near the center, and many fine channel-like features. It is shown here at a resolution of 32 pixels per degree (1.4 kilometers or 4,600 feet per pixel), an eighth of the full resolution available in the Planetary Data System. NASA / JPL-Caltech
