This view highlights the distinctive flat feature set atop a raised plateau on the larger lobe of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. In several locations close to the base of this feature, there are patches of brighter material, perhaps recently exposed by erosion.

This single-frame NAVCAM image measures 1024 x 1024 pixels. It was captured from a distance of 9.8 km from the centre of the comet (7.8 km from the surface) at 11:48 GMT on 24 October 2014. At this distance, the image resolution is 83.3 cm/pixel and the size of the image is 854 x 854 m.
