The Quiet Sea
The Huygens probe above the clouds of Titan, Saturn's largest moon
The Quiet Sea
This is an impression of the Huygens probe, which touched down on Titan on 14 January 2005. Saturn is shown nearly full (as it appeared when the probe got there) but with a substantial shadow of the ring system on it cast by the Sun. A bit of artistic licence here, too, for Saturn was in the other hemisphere when Huygens got there!
