    THis was obviously not visible directly from the Earth but should be of some 
    interest to satellite observers: the Huygens probe flared nicely for the 
    camera on Dec. 26, 2004, two days after it successfully detached from the 
    Cassini spacecraft. An image of the flare is helping navigators reconstruct 
    the probe's trajectory and pinpoint its position relative to Cassini. 
    
    If interested in seeing the image and learning more take a look at:
