This map of Titan's surface illustrates the regions that will be imaged by Cassini during the spacecraft's close flyby of Titan on Sept. 7, 2005. At closest approach, the spacecraft is expected to pass approximately 1,075 kilometers (670 miles) above the moon's surface. This is Cassini's eighth flyby of Titan out of 45 flybys planned in the four-year tour. The colored lines delineate the regions that will be imaged at differing resolutions. Zooming-in closer to Titan than during its previous pass two weeks earlier, Cassini camera coverage again focuses on the region known informally as "the H". Some of the narrow-angle camera images Cassini takes during this close flyby will be composited into high-resolution mosaics, similar to
