Rosetta's OSIRIS wide-angle camera captures the moment a jet bursts into action on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image on the left was taken at 07:13 UTC on 12 March 2015. The image on the right was taken two minutes later at 07:15 UTC and shows a spectacular new jet has emerged on the comet's dark side.

An animation of the two images is available here.

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