The Hatmehit region on the small lobe of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as seen by Rosetta's navigation camera around the time of Philae’s first touchdown, flight over the comet and final touchdown at 15:35, 16:35 and 17:35 GMT (onboard spacecraft time) on 12 November 2014. The distance between the spacecraft and comet centre over this period was between 17.4 and 17.8 km; apparent changes in the image scale are due to projection effects as the comet rotated underneath the spacecraft. The first landing site can be found in the first image, in the bottom left corner of the frame. The images have been contrast enhanced.
The images are part of today's NavCam data release: NAVCAM image bonanza: close orbits and comet landing
