This is the last image sent by OSIRIS at approx. 20 m above surface of comet 67P. The image resolution is 2 mm per pixel, with 480 by 480 pixel in image size covering a field of 96 cm across.
We discontinue our Image-of-the-Day distribution as we will not receive images anymore. Please follow the Rosetta story thru the ESA blog at http://blogs.esa.int/rosetta/ providing great detail on all instruments onboard, and the bigger picture.
Thanks for your continued interest. Farewell, Rosetta, what a wonderful mission!
