This single frame Rosetta navigation camera image of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko was taken on 19 October 2014 from a distance of 9.9 km from the comet centre, or approximately 7.9 km from the surface. The image has an average resolution of 77 cm/pixel and measures 785 m across. It has been contrast enhanced.
This image looks across the neck from the comet’s small lobe in the foreground to the large lobe in the background. Parts of the Anuket and Serqet regions are visible in the foreground and a portion of Hapi is present at centre-left, with the dramatic cliff edge in Seth in the background.
All images from the close 10 km orbit phase of the mission are now available; see the blog for more information: NAVCAM image bonanza: close orbits and comet landing
