Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 5 June 2015 at 208 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image measures 18.1 km across and has a scale of about 17.7 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 image is available here.
