The Rosetta spacecraft used a wide-angle camera to acquire this image of Comet from a distance of 30 kilometers. The nucleus is deliberately overexposed in order to reveal the faint jets of activity. Photographed on on November released on January
The Rosetta mission spent much of the second half of October orbiting comet at less than six miles from its surface. This previously unpublished image, taken by Rosetta’s navigation camera, shows its dramatic terrain.
