Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 19 October 2014 at a distance of 9.9 km from the centre of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, or approximately 7.9 km from the surface. The image has an average resolution of 77 cm/pixel and measures 785 m across. It has been contrast enhanced.

This image looks across the neck from the comet's small lobe in the foreground to the large lobe in the background. Parts of the Anuket and Serqet regions are visible in the foreground and a portion of Hapi is present at centre-left, with the dramatic cliff edge in Seth in the background.

All images from the close 10 km orbit phase of the mission are now available in ESA's Planetary Science Archive and can also be accessed through the archive's image browser.

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