Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 26 October 2015, at 19:28 UTC, from a distance of 310 km to the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image measures 27.1 km across and has a scale of about 26.5 m/pixel.

The image has been cleaned to remove the more obvious bad pixels and cosmic ray artefacts, and intensities have been scaled.

This image has been enhanced to bring out the details of the comet's activity. The original image is available here.

Another view of the comet on 26 October, but from 6 hours earlier, is available here.

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