Possible landing sites for Philae on NavCam images of Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Possible landing sites for Philae on NavCam images of Churyumov-Gerasimenko All of the NavCam images of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken between August 5 and August 22, 2014 have been organized according to their geometry and labeled with the five selected landing sites. (Labels were drawn by Emily Lakdawalla and may contain errors. Do not use for spacecraft navigation.) All images have been resized to a common scale of 5 meters per pixel; the scale bar is 5 kilometers long. Circles drawn on landing sites are 1 kilometer in diameter. An unlabeled version of this mosaic is available here. ESA / Rosetta / NavCam / Emily Lakdawalla
