Comet jet awakens, 12 March 2015, animation - OSIRIS WAC
Rosetta's OSIRIS wide-angle camera captures the moment a jet bursts into action on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This animated sequence alternates between two images taken two minutes apart, at 07:13 and 17:15 UTC on 12 March 2015, just before and after a spectacular new jet emerged on the dark side of the comet.
More images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be found in the '67P - by Rosetta' collection.
