This mosaic of images taken by the Cassini spacecraft as it approached Saturn shows the surface features of Titan, from the dark "H" on the left to the bright observation area at the south pole on the right. Visible in the center is the location where the spacecraft's Huygens probe will descend in January 2005.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the Cassini-Huygens mission for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging team is based at the Space Science Institute, Boulder, Colo.
