This composite image of Mars was generated using images acquired on 24 February at 18:28 UT, during Rosetta's swing-by of Mars. The images were taken by the OSIRIS Narrow Angle Camera at near-infrared, green and near-ultraviolet wavelengths.
At the time, Rosetta was at a distance of about 240 000 km, and only 7.5 hours away from closest approach. The image resolution is about 5 km/pixel.
