Another NAVCAM beauty…

The ROSETTA NAVCAM team has done it again – released a jaw-dropping image of Comet 67P that shows just what a stunning object the comet is…

That new image really shows how active the comet is now it has passed perihelion. And it’s only going to get more active, so we can look forward to increasingly-dramatic views over the coming weeks.

Thank you again to the brilliant NAVCAM team, and all the ROSETTA Outreach people, for keeping the ROSETTA mission alive for us out here. I think we are due another mass release of NAVCAM images to the ESA Archives next month, but I’m checking on that because I’ve lost track a bit.

And you never know, we might see some more OSIRIS images soon, too.
