Space science image of the week: Around Anuket
A recent NAVCAM image of Comet 67P-Churyumov Gerasimenko is featured as our ESA Space Science Image of the Week.
Vaguely suggestive of a face immersed in deep thoughts, the image shows the rough landscape of Anuket, a region of rugged terrains on the small comet lobe and declining towards the large lobe, which is located beyond the lower-right corner of the image.
Also visible in this view are Serqet, on the upper left, Ma’at on the lower left, partly cast in shadow, and a hint of Hathor, albeit cast in shadow, in the lower part of the image.
The original NAVCAM image is provided below.
