Deep Impact Hartley 2 approach animation As Deep Impact approached for its encounter with Hartley 2 during September and October 2010, the science team released occasional optical navigation images of the comet against a background starfield. The images have been processed after release to make their brightness and contrast more uniform from frame to frame. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UMD / animation by Emily Lakdawalla
