    thanks for the new picture.

  • Terran says:

    Great pictures coming in one after another. This is awesome, I appreciate it!
    Had to be said after some complained lately.

  • Robert Schlingensiepen says:

    Still, this is the Navcam. I am sure that much higher resolution images from Osiris are already available, and not being shared with the public :-(

  • Mark Zambelli says:

    Wowsers! Thankyou for posting these navcam images and giving us all an extra treat during this crucial last approach phase. Bravo to all at ESA and applause for Rosetta for performing so admirably... she's doing an awesome job too!
    (To my eyes, the "Rubber Duck" now looks like "E.T." ! )

  • Ingo Althöfer says:

    Thanks for the better class of Captchas!

  • Clive Hartland says:

    This is a tremendous achievement so far, landing on the Comet with Philae will give, 'Out of this world pictures'.
    Pity that more info. is not forthcoming but understand why!

  • Brilliant work by the ESA and associated teams. This is something the world should be proud of and supporting. Can't wait till we see the closeups of the comet surface in a few weeks.

  • Michael Räde says:

    Great images! Thanks for sharing.

  • Cesare Guaita Milano Plantarium says:
