Comet 67P/C-G on 12 May 2015 - NavCam
Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 12 May 2015 at 166 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image measures 14.5 km across and has a scale of about 14 m/pixel.
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 enhanced to bring out the details of the comet's activity and the small lobe's silhouette, is available here.
More images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be found in the '67P - by Rosetta' collection.
