NavCam view of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko on September 27, 2014: night excursion Rosetta took the images for this mosaic of comet 67P while on a "nightside excursion," an orbit that allowed it to view the comet from very high phase. The spacecraft was about 23.6 kilometers from the comet's center at the time.
