Titan's Surface from 8 km Altitude

November 16, 2009
This composite was produced from images returned 14 January 2005, by ESA's Huygens probe during its successful descent to land on Titan. It shows the boundary between the lighter-coloured uplifted terrain, marked with what appear to be drainage channels, and darker lower areas.

These images were taken from an altitude of about 8 kilometres with a resolution of about 20 metres per pixel.
