Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 17 October 2014 at 10.0 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image measures 870 m across and has a scale of about 85 cm/pixel.

The image focuses on the row of 'boulders' lying in the Hapi region on the comet's neck.

The image has been cleaned to remove the more obvious bad pixels and cosmic ray artefacts, and intensities have been scaled.

Another version of this image, which has been contrast enhanced, is available here.

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