Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 14 March 2015 at 85.7 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image has been cropped and measures 6.4 × 6.3 km; the resolution is about 7.3 m/pixel.

The image has been cleaned to remove the more obvious bad pixels and cosmic ray artefacts, and intensities have been scaled.

This image has been enhanced to bring out the details of the comet's activity. The original and uncropped image is available here.

More images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be found in the '67P - by Rosetta' collection.
