Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 23 October 2014 at 9.8 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The average image scale is about 83 cm/pixel and the image measures 850 m across (note that because of the viewing geometry the foreground could be up to 2 km closer, and therefore likely has an approximate scale of 67 cm/pixel).

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

This image has been enhanced to bring out details of the background cliffs and the faint glow of activity. The original image is available here.

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