Comet 67P/C-G: Ma'at and Maftet


Date: 15 July 2015
Satellite: Rosetta

This image shows the interesting surface textures at the boundary of the Ma'at and Maftet region on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko's small lobe (for a context image, see here). The dust covered Ma'at region is just seen in the top right, which seems to thin out into the rough, terraced terrain of Maftet in the lower left.

The image was taken with Rosetta's OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on 30 September 2014 when the spacecraft was 16 km from the surface of the comet.
