Comet 67P/C-G on 22 August 2016 - NavCam
Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 22 August 2016 at 6.8 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, or about 5.6 km from the surface in this view. The image measures 0.5 km across and has a scale of about 0.5 m/pixel.
The image has been cleaned to remove the more obvious bad pixels and cosmic ray artefacts, and intensities have been scaled.
The faint vertical striping is an imaging artefact.
Another version of this image, which has been contrast enhanced, is available here.
