Comet 67P on 10 December - NAVCAM

This four image mosaic comprises images taken with Rosetta’s NAVCAM of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, taken on 9 December 2014 when Rosetta was at a distance of 20.1 km from the centre of the comet. The image resolution is 1.71 m/pixel and thus each original 1024 x 1024 pixel frame measures 1.75 km across. The mosaic is slightly cropped and measures 2.9 x 2.6 km.
