Rodriguez et al. identify transient brightenings in infrared observations of Titan by the Cassini spacecraft. Using a combination of observations and modelling, they find that these brightenings could result from regional dust storms triggered by strong winds during methane storms – a process analogous to terrestrial haboobs. This suggests that Titan’s vast dune field may be active today.
