Comet 67P/C-G on 8 September 2016 - NavCam
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. The faint vertical striping is an imaging artefact.
Another version of this image, which has been contrast enhanced, is available here.
