A few months ago I posted a link to a story that covered what may be Titan's most bizarre feature: A 'bright' spot the size of West Virginia that shows up across the spectrum. Well, it looks like we'll have another chance to get a glimpse of it on July 2nd when Cassini makes a night time flyby of Titan. Will the spot still be there? Will it be visible at night?

Scientists have speculated that the spot could be caused by a recent asteroid strike, volcanoes, or an unexplained atmospheric disturbance. Since the spot appeared in the same shape and location at the time of two previous flybys, however, the atmospheric explanation seems (in my opinion) less than believable.
