Full-frame Rosetta navigation camera (NAVCAM) image taken on 20 October 2014 at 9.4 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko – about 7.4 km from the surface. In this orientation the smaller lobe of the comet is on the left, with the larger lobe on the right.

NAVCAM image sequences are now being taken as small 2×2 rasters and only part of the comet is seen in each of the four images. A montage of all four images from this sequence is available here.

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