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.

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