NavCam images of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko from Rosetta's transfer from 100- to 60-kilometer orbit A collection of images released by ESA to show Rosetta's view on the comet as it transitioned from its initial 100-kilometer orbit to one that will have an average distance of 60 kilometers. They have been reoriented so that the Sun appears to be coming from the top of the image. The images were taken on August 15-18 (top row) and 19-21 (bottom row). They were taken from distances of 91, 93.5, 102, 84, 79, 83, and 69 kilometers, respectively. ESA / Rosetta / NavCam / Emily Lakdawalla
