Go Back

90 kilometers above the surface of Titan An artist's conception of Huygens' descent. The blue color of the sky slowly fades with decreasing distance to the surface, and is replaced by a brownish tint. At this altitude Huygens is still above the layer of complex organic condensate haze, which prevents a clear view down to the surface.
