Looks to me like two objects have joined together, to form a dumbell, maybe?
sur le site de l'esa, difficile de trouver les dernières nouvelles de rosetta ainsi que les photos récentes, dommage car la dernière photo date du 3 aout.
I can make out a human face on RHS !. very odd .
Just the shadows !.

Im so proud of all the Rosetta team, you have done an amazing job.
Scratch one up for humanity and the quest for knowledge. I cant wait to see what you all find, just buzzing, I can only imagine your all drinking! Ill have a beer (or 6) for you all tonight! Dont think Ill get much gazing in...lol
Congratulations to the ESA Rosetta Team! A major accomplishment!
Congratulations to the team! I know how much work goes into capturing these types of images and into the journey that made this image and others to come possible. Well done!
Ok congratulations to all of you but not for the technical achievement as this is straight forward state of art. The big skill was to get hold of the billion worth bag of money to finance this adventure over 10 years and many more to go. The mission is not ended 2015, its a long journey still to go to evaluate all of the data collected and if done well its the entry to the next and even more exiting mission. (And more billions to pay the bills).
These pictures from Rosetta show a dumbbell shaped comet which is curiously similar to the pictures of comet Halley sent back from Giotto. Is this just a coincidence, or is it some sort of function of the motion of the comet? Well done ESA, what an amazing achievement.
merci à toute l'équipe d'aventuriers de l'esa pour nous faire partager de grands moments comme jules verne aurait aimer les vivre, enfin une réalisation digne de l'humanité qui nous fait rêver, nous en avons tellement besoin !
nous aimerions avoir plus de détails techniques sur la mise en orbite autour de la comète car on ne sais pas grand chose de ce qui se passe en coulisse. merci
Congratulations ESA, what an astonishing success so far for Rosetta.
The detail and clarity of this image, taken from a distance of 285kms at a distance of 400 million kms from Earth, all while the comet is travelling at 55,000kms/hr, and after a 6.5 billion km/10 year journey by the spacecraft, is an engineering and technical masterpiece and confirms my faith in humanity and the future.
I look forward to closer encounters and the Philae landing.
Well done ESA!
