These stereographic (fish-eye) images of Titan's surface were taken during Huygens's descent by the Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer (DISR) on 14 January 2005. This view shows the surface from 6 different altitudes from 150 km down to 200 m. It also shows the haze layer at 20-21 kilometres altitude.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project between NASA, ESA and Italy's ASI space agency.
