Comet 67P/C-G on 11 September 2016 - NavCam
Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 11 September 2016 at 9.8 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image measures 0.9 km across and has a scale of about 0.8 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 near the top and bottom of the image is an imaging artefact.
Another version of this image, which has been contrast enhanced, is available here.
More images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be found in the '67P - by Rosetta' collection.
