Comet-light on the cliffs of Hathor

Comet-light on the cliffs of Hathor
Comet-light on the cliffs of Hathor This is the last NavCam view of the comet taken before Rosetta left the "bound orbit" phase of the mission. The view is across the large end of the comet toward the underside of the smaller end. The cliffs of Hathor are in shadow, but receive light reflected from the surface of the comet and also from the particles in jets and coma. ESA / Rosetta / NavCam / Elisabetta Bonora / Marco Faccin
