This view from the OSIRIS instrument on the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft shows the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimernko from a distance of 1,210 miles (1,950 kilometers).
The image was taken on July 29, 2014. One pixel in this image corresponds to approximately 120 feet (37 meters).
The bright neck region between the comet's head and body is becoming increasingly distinct as Rosetta approaches and its view improves.
