Comet 67P/C-G on 30 May 2016 - NavCam, enhanced
Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 30 May 2016 at 7 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, or about 6.5 km from the surface in this view (taking into account the comet's orientation and inclination with respect to the spacecraft). The image measures about 570 m across and has an average scale of 0.55 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 also been contrast enhanced. The original image is available here.
More images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be found in the '67P - by Rosetta' collection.
