A photo of Mars taken by ESA's Mars Express on 1 December from 5.5M km away. On the 19th it will launch a lander (Beagle 2) which is planned to land on the morning of the 25th.
(Don't miss flash "Where is Mars Express Now" on the right.)
Also, NASA's Cassini is 111M km from Saturn and approaching. It also took a snapshot of its destination (set to orbit and take pictures).
