Comet 67P/C-G on 15 August 2016 from 5.5 km - OSIRIS NAC
A view of the Seth region of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from a distance of 5.5 km. It illustrates the transition between fractured, consolidated material and finer dust.
The spacecraft's trajectory around the comet changed progressively during the final two months, bringing it closer and closer to the comet at its nearest point along elliptical orbits. This image was taken on 15 August 2016 by Rosetta's OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on the third of these ellipses. The image scale is about 10 cm/pixel at the centre of the image.
