Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, taken by the narrow angle camera of Rosetta's scientific imaging system, OSIRIS, on 4 July 2014, at a distance of 37 000 km. The three images are separated by 4 hours, and are shown in order from left to right. The comet has a rotation period of about 12.4 hours. It covers an area of about 30 pixels, and although individual features are not yet resolved, the image is beginning to reveal the comet's irregular shape.

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