Amazing new view of Comet 67P
This image from the Rosetta spacecraft of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko was taken on July 7, 2015 from a distance of 154 km from the comet’s center.
The comet was the destination of the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission, launched on March 2, 2004. Rosetta entered the comet’s orbit on September 10, 2014 and it’s lander, Philae, touched down on its surface on November 12, 2014, becoming the first spacecraft to land on a comet.
In this orientation the comet’s small lobe is to the top left, while the large lobe is to the bottom right.
