The first global geologic map of Titan is based on radar and visible-light images from NASAs Cassini mission, which orbited Saturn from 2004 to 2017. [/caption] An incredible set of images are beaming back from the Cassini spacecraft as it orbits Saturn, snapping away at the sights. See amazing photos from the historic Jan. 14, 2005 landing of Europe's Huygens probe on Titan, Saturn's largest moon.

ESA's Huygens probe was delivered to Titan by NASA's Cassini.

Cassini took the images from a distance of about 140,000 kilometers (87,000 miles) from Titan, as it made its way towards the atmosphere of Saturn.

Cassini used Titan’s gravity to tour Saturn’s rings, climbing high above the ring plane and threading gaps between the rings.

Titan. All Huygens raw images … Initially thought to be rocks or ice blocks, they are more pebble-sized. This is the first coloured view of Titan's surface, following processing to add reflection spectra data, gives a better indication of the actual colour of the surface. Titan Images.
