Cassini will kick off a slew of Titan flybys starting Jan. 13, 2007, one day shy of the Huygens probe two-year anniversary, by imaging Titan's surface with its radar instrument.

This year, Cassini has in store 17 flybys of Titan and one flyby each of the moons, Tethys (June 27), Rhea (August 30) and Iapetus (September 10), bringing the total to 20 flybys. That's more flybys than any other year in Cassini's four-year tour.
