Titan Flyby (T-78) - Sept. 12, 2011
T-78: CIRS Goes High
During this flyby, the composite infrared spectrometer (CIRS) focused on studying Titan’s atmosphere at high latitudes.
In addition, the ultraviolet imaging spectrograph (UVIS) instrument had a solar occultation, and the visible and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIMS) had a stellar occultation of a star in the constellation Aquarius. The measurements taken will allow scientists to constrain the composition and the spectral properties of Titan's atmosphere.
