Images of asteroid (2867) Steins taken by the OSIRIS Wide Angle Camera on Rosetta during the flyby of 5 September 2008. The effective diameter of the asteroid is 5 km, approximately as predicted. At the top of the asteroid (as shown in these images), a large crater, approximately 2 km in size, can be seen. 
After the press conference provisional estimates (*) of the distance and phase angle for these images have been provided (from topleft to bottomright):

Distance= 1340 km phase angle= 2°
 Distance= 1140 km phase angle= 6°
 Distance= 960 km phase angle= 17°

Distance= 810 km phase angle= 43°
 Distance= 800 km phase angle= 55°
 Distance= 950 km phase angle= 84°

(*)The estimates are based on the predicted time of closest approach (20:38:16 CEST  spacecraft event time). Some changes to these distance and phase angle estimates may be introduced when the actual time of closest approach has been confirmed. These are expected to be no more than 50 km for the larger distances and no more than 10 km at closest approach. The phase angles are expected to change by no more than 2 degrees.
