This movie zooms in on Titan by a factor of a billion, centred on the Huygens probe's landing site. The scale is shown in the lower right corner.

This narrated movie was created using the data collected by the Huygens Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer (DISR) on 14 January 2005, during the 2 hour 27 minute plunge through Titan's thick atmosphere to a soft sandy riverbed, as well as with data from the Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem.

Video: Erich Karkoschka, DISR team, University of Arizona. Narrator: Dan Kruse
