Rosetta Navigational Camera view of Earth, November 13, 2009
Rosetta captured at 14:23 UTC, a few hours after its Earth flyby on November 13, 2009, using its navigational camera. The images were intended to test the camera's operation when a target fills the frame. The next object that will fill the navigational camera's field of view is the asteroid Lutetia, which Rosetta will encounter in 2010.
