Rosetta navigation camera (NavCam) image taken on 8 September 2016 at 4.3 km from the centre of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, or about 2.6 km from the surface in this view. The image measures 225 m across and has a scale of about 0.2 m/pixel. This is one of the three closest images taken by NavCam. Additional details and a context image are in this Rosetta blog post.

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.
