Comet 67P/C-G on 2 October 2014 - NavCam montage
Montage of four images taken by Rosetta's navigation camera (NAVCAM) on 2 October 2014 at 19 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image provides a stunning view onto the 'neck' region of the comet.
The four images were taken in sequence as a 2×2 raster over a period of about twenty minutes, meaning that there is some motion of the spacecraft and rotation of the comet between the images.
The images have been cleaned to remove the more obvious bad 'pixel pairs' and cosmic ray artefacts, intensities have been scaled.
The four individual full-frame images are also available as related images in the right-hand menu.
More images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be found in the '67P - by Rosetta' collection.
