CIVA camera 1 view at Abydos

Date: 30 July 2015
Satellite: Rosetta
Depicts: View from Abydos landing site on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Copyright: ESA/Rosetta/Philae/CIVA

This image was acquired by Philae's CIVA camera 1 at the final landing site Abydos, on the small lobe of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, on 13 November 2014. The image has been processed to reveal the backlit fractured 'cliff', nicknamed 'perihelion cliff', and the +Y foot of the lander, which is partly reflecting on the surface of the cliff, but does not seem to be resting on the comet's surface.

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