Comet 67P/C-G in 3D
Peer over cliffs and onto the boulder-strewn ‘neck’ region, marvel at the layers in the exposed cliff face, and ponder the formation of the numerous crater-like depressions in this amazing 3D view of comet 67P/C-G.
The anaglyph image can be viewed using stereoscopic glasses with red–green/blue filters. The two images used to make the anaglyph are also posted separately below. They were taken on 7 August 2014, from a distance of 104 kilometres through the orange filter of the OSIRIS narrow-angle camera. They are separated by 17 minutes and the exposure time is 138 milliseconds.
