Planetary scientists have been scouring over some 2,000 Cassini images, in order to put together a picture of Titan's seasons. Each season, on Titan, lasts an insane seven Earth years.

Scientists have noted significant changes between July 2004 and April 2010, which coincides with early summer in the southern hemisphere to spring in the northern hemisphere. Cloud activity has also recently decreased over both poles, having been heavily overcast during late southern summer until 2008, as Saturn approached equinox.
