Titan's surface as seen by the spaceprobe Huygens on January 14th 2005. This is amongst the first raw images that Huygens took when it landed on Titan. The two rock-like objects just below the centre of the image are about 15cm (left) and 4cm (centre) across at a distance of about 85cm from Huygens. The surface is darker than expected and consists of a mixture of water and hydrocarbon ice. Some evidence of erosion is evident at the base of these objects.
