Two pictures of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko taken two days apart. Sit back about a foot (0.3-meter) from the screen and slowly cross your eyes until you see the third stereo image appear between the two. Careful not to fall in any holes! Click to enlarge. Credit: ESA/Rosetta/NAVCAM
Here are a few new photos for your supermoon-drenched eyes today showing comet 67P/C-G in stereo as well as in fresh views from different angles made on August 8th and 9th.
The comet from 50 miles (81 km) on August 8, 2014. Assuming a length of about 2.5 miles for the comet nucleus, I estimated the largest boulder in the boulder field (center-left) at roughly 115 feet (~35-m) across. That’s about 3 school buses parked end to end. Credit: ESA/Rosetta/NAVCAM
What I call the Star Trek Enterprise angle on comet 67P/C-G from August 9, 2014 from 61 miles (99 km). Credit: ESA/Rosetta/NAVCAM
