The scale is 27.2 m/pixel and a picture measures 27.9 km across. The contrariety was increasing to exhibit a comet’s activity.

In this orientation, a tiny comet lobe is on a left and a vast lobe on a right. Rosetta was drifting on a night side of a comet during a time, so many of a iota appears dim and stands out beautifully opposite a disband credentials heat of activity.

Parts of a Anubis and Atum regions are manifest on a tip corner of a vast lobe in this view, while Seth and Ash (below) are mostly expel in shadow. Anuket can be seen on a comet’s neck, heading to a tiny patch of Serqet that is manifest on a tip left corner of a tiny lobe; next these dual regions, Hapi (on a neck) and Ma’at (on a tiny lobe) are also expel in shadow.

The strange 1024 x 1024 picture of today’s CometWatch is supposing below:
