Navcam views of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, August 4-6, 2014 This composite of Navcam images captures slightly more than two full rotations of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko during Rosetta's final approach to its August 6, 2014 arrival. The comet rotates once every 12.4 hours. The images were taken from a longer animation; in the first four rows, the frames were probably taken an hour apart.
