Views of the Rosetta landing site (low sun) Two views of the Rosetta landing site on the Ma'at region of comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken by the Navcam (left) and OSIRIS narrow-angle camera (right) on November 11, 2014. With the low sun angle, the interiors of the two prominent circular Ma'at pits are hidden, and a hint of texture can be seen in the smooth areas outside the two pits. The upper left pit is Deir el-Medina. The prospective landing site is to the let of Deir el-Medina in these images. The pits are about 100 meters across.
