67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko: A Bit Closer

Rosetta 20141028
This four-image montage was taken by Rosetta‘s navigation camera from a distance of 9.7 km from the center of comet 67P/C-G (about 7.7 km from the surface). The original image scale is about 65 cm/pixel, so each 1024 x 1024 pixel frame scales about 665 m across. The resolution is reduced to about 2.3 m/pixel in this picture.
