Using the CIVA camera on Rosetta's Philae lander, the spacecraft have snapped a 'selfie' at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image was taken on 7 September 2014 from a distance of about 50 km from the comet, and captures the side of the Rosetta spacecraft and one of Rosetta's 14 m-long solar wings, with the comet in the background. Two images with different exposure times were combined to bring out the faint details in this very high contrast situation.
