Images recorded by the European Space Agency's Huygens probe descent imager/spectral radiometer between 17 and 8 kilometres were assembled to produce this panoramic mosaic. The probe ground track is indicated as points in white. North is up. Narrow dark linear markings, interpreted as channels, cut through the brighter terrain. The complex channel network implies precipitation (likely as methane "rain") and possibly springs. The circle indicates the outline of the low-altitude panorama shown in this second image).

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