This is an increased contrast version of this montage and more clearly shows the comet's outflows of gas and dust and also brings out the details of some of the shadowed regions.

The montage is comprised of four images taken by Rosetta's navigation camera (NAVCAM) on 26 November 2014 at 30.1 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

The four images were taken in sequence as a 2×2 raster over a short 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, and 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.
