This considerable perspective of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko was prisoner on 21 May from a stretch of 156.8 km from a comet centre. It is a singular support picture with a fortitude of 13.4 m/pixel, and measures 13.7 km across. The intensities and contrariety have been practiced to emphasize a activity of a comet.
Activity is seen all around a nucleus, though in this perspective is many important around a head, with many distinct, splendid jets streaming from a surface. Intricate patterns of activity are also expel around a neck and opposite a shade of a tiny lobe.
The rather prosaic face on a comet’s vast lobe, comprising tools of Aker and Khepry, dominates a perspective of a nucleus. The lengthen Aten segment lies adjacent, with disband wisps of activity unresolved in front of this shadowed depression.
A fainter cloud of activity is also manifest next a shadowed underside of a comet’s vast lobe.
Today’s picture also creates for a good comparison with a 26 Apr entry, that shows a comet in a identical orientation.
The strange 1024 x 1024 pixel picture is supposing below:
