06/09/11

 

Left: Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko is hidden within this sector of space, a crowded star field in the constellation Scorpius that is towards the center of our galaxy. The image was taken by OSIRIS's wide-angle camera. Middle: The narrow-angle camera allows for a closer look, and shows many background stars. Right: After refined steps of data processing the comet becomes visible. Credits: ESA 2011 MPS for OSIRIS-Team MPS/UPD/LAM/IAA/RSSD/INTA/UPM/DASP/IDA
