INCREDIBLE gallery of comet pictures from Rosetta

Just found this gallery yesterday of numerous jaw-dropping shots of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from Rosetta:

Rosetta is trailing a warming comet

It's hard to pick a favorite.  So let's just call this a sample.

Caption:  "The comet’s head, neck and back are sunlit in this image taken from 17 miles away. A prominent jet of gas and dust extends from an active region of the surface near the comet’s neck."

Now, if Philae would just wake up and phone home, things would be even better in the comet neighborhood.
