On Titan!

A hard surface landing for the Huygens probe and Earth's scientific minds are blown!
The European Space Agency along with NASA and the Italian Space Agency have not yet analyzed the hours old images and so cannot provide information about the rocks or ice chunks with litter the hard granular surface.

This images was taken 16.2 km from the surface of Saturn's largest moon and, amazingly, seems to show drainage channels leading to a shoreline.

Elsewhere in the Solar System...

A true color rendering of the Mars Rover Opportunity's inverted heat shield along with a spring and other metal debris on the Meridiani Planum.
The image was taken on January 2, 2005 or, rather, on the Rover's 335th Martian day.
