CIVA camera 2 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 2 at the final landing site Abydos, on the small lobe of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, on 13 November 2014. The image captures one of the lander's CONSERT antennas with open sky in the background, providing a clue as to the lander's orientation. Glare is seen just above the antenna, as a result of direct sunlight illumination of the front lens.

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