This colour composite is constructed from three images of asteroid Steins taken with the OSIRIS Narrow Angle Camera, approximately 10.5 minutes before closest approach on 5 September 2008. At that time the distance from the asteroid was about 9500 km and the phase angle 34 degrees.
The blue (479 nm central wavelength), green (537 nm), and orange (648 nm) filters were used.
