OSIRIS Image of the Day
|Full resolution, Download||See more images in the Image of the Day Archive|
This image is part of a campaign to investigate how the spectral slope and reflectivity of dust particles in the enviroment of CG depend on the phase angle, that is the angle between Rosetta, the particle,and the sun.
In this image, particles far away appear as small features, while particles close by are resolved, and particles even closer appear as defocussed,'translucent' patches.
