Rosetta: New 3D image of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko

Peer over cliffs and onto the boulder-strewn ‘neck’ region, marvel at the layers in the exposed cliff face, and ponder the formation of the numerous crater-like depressions in this amazing 3D view of comet 67P/C-G.
The anaglyph image can be viewed using stereoscopic glasses with red–green/blue filters. The two images used to make the anaglyph are also posted separately below. They were taken on 7 August 2014, from a distance of 104 kilometres through the orange filter of the OSIRIS narrow-angle camera. They are separated by 17 minutes and the exposure time is 138 milliseconds.

Ok, get out those 3D glasses for comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko.  This isn’t an ESA image release; one of the very talented people over at UMSF put it together from a couple of OSIRIS and Navcam images.  Original image caption:

Stereo image of the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. One image is original from OSIRIS NAC camera (date 3.8.2014).
Second one is synthetic image obtained from OSIRIS and NavCam images. Resolution is 5.3 m/pix.

Rosetta:  Comet close-up, August 6th 2014

Close-up detail of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image was taken by Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera and downloaded today, 6 August. The image shows the comet’s ‘head’ at the left of the frame, which is casting shadow onto the ‘neck’ and ‘body’ to the right.  

The image was taken from a distance of 120 km and the image resolution is 2.2 metres per pixel

Rosetta:  Comet details, August 6th 2014

Stunning close up detail focusing on a smooth region on the ‘base’ of the ‘body’ section of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image was taken by Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera and downloaded today, 6 August. The image clearly shows a range of features, including boulders, craters and steep cliffs.

The image was taken from a distance of 130 km and the image resolution is 2.4 metres per pixel.

Rosetta:  Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, August 1st 2014

Rosetta sees the comet just five days before arrival.

This image was acquired 1 August at 04:48 CEST (02:48 UTC) by the OSIRIS Narrow Angle Camera on board ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft. The distance was approximately 1000 km. Note that the dark spot is an artefact from the onboard CCD.
