Comet 67P from the Rosetta Spacecraft. Time-lapse montage of images of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko). This animation of NAVCAM (navigational camera) images follows Rosetta"s approach to the comet from a distance of about 800 km on 1 August to a distance of about 62 km on 22 August 2014. This comet measures around 3.5 by 4 kilometres. The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft was launched in March 2004 and entered orbit around the comet on 6 August 2014. It carried instruments and a lander, named Philae, to map and study the comet's surface and core.
