Comet jets! NavCam view of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko on September 2, 2014 A four-image mosaic of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken by Rosetta on September 2, 2014 clearly shows at least two jets emanating from the "neck" region of the comet.

The original images were processed to remove striping artifacts and mosaicked using Microsoft Image Composite Editor. The brightness of the jets has been increased to make them more visible.

Original image data dated on or about September 2, 2014.
