Active regions in Seth
High-resolution view of active regions in Seth as seen with Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on September 20, 2014 from a distance of about 26 kilometers from the surface. The image scale is about 45 cm/pixel. The Seth_01 pit is seen close to center, and measures approximately 220 m across and 185 m deep. The image also includes Seth_02 and Seth_03 to the ‘top’ of Seth_01, and Seth_04 and Seth_05 ‘below’ (see context image for guidance).

Context map for active regions on comet 67P
Eighteen pits have been identified in high-resolution OSIRIS images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko’s northern hemisphere. The pits are named after the region they are found in, and some of them are active. The context image was taken on August 3, 2014 by the narrow-angle camera from a distance of 285 km; the image resolution is 5.3 m/pixel.
