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).

Before & after: Active pit in Seth region of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Active pit detected in Seth region of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. This is an OSIRIS narrow-angle camera image acquired on 28 August 2014 from a distance of 60 km. The image resolution is 1 m/pixel. Enhancing the contrast reveals fine structures in the shadow of the pit, interpreted as jet-like features rising from the pit.
