Titan's surface. This composite view was produced from images taken by the spaceprobe Huygens during its successful descent on Saturn's largest moon Titan. The images were taken on January 14th 2005 and show a 360-degree view around Huygens. As the probe descended, it drifted over a plateau (centre) and headed towards its landing site in the dark area at right. Wind speed was estimated at around 6-7km per hour. The images were taken from an altitude of 8km at a resolution of about 20m per pixel.
