Landing Site J - Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (21 September 2014)

Rosetta's navigation camera (NAVCAM) took this image of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 21 September, from a distance of 27.8 km from the comet center. The image covers an area of about 2 x 1.9 km and focuses on the smaller of the two comet lobes. The primary landing site J is 'above' the distinctive depression in this view.
