Calm Before the Storm
"The Huygens probe is about to make contact with the thick, orange atmosphere of Titan, having been released from the Cassini mother probe some time earlier. Saturn is seen in the distance with the phase as it was at the time of the encounter. This artwork was rendered entirely by hand in Photoshop."
