Images recorded by the European Space Agency's Huygens probe descent imager/spectral radiometer between 7 and 0.5 kilometres were assembled to produce this panoramic mosaic. The probe ground track is indicated as points in white. North is up. The ridge near the centre is cut by a dozen darker lanes or channels. The landing site is marked with an "X" near the continuation of one of the channels.

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