Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from 300 Kilometers

Full-frame NAVCAM image taken on 3 August 2014 from a distance of about 300 km from comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The image has been processed using an interpolation technique – the factor for scaling up and interpolation is 2. The resolution has therefore been increased from 1024 x 1024 to 2048 x 2048 pixels. The Sun is towards the bottom of the image in this orientation.
