Rosetta: Earth's True Colors

November 21, 2007

After its closest approach to Earth, Rosetta looked back and took a number of images using the OSIRIS Narrow Angle Camera (NAC). This particular image was acquired November 15, 2007 at 03:30 CET.

The image is a colour composite of the NAC Orange, Green and Blue filters.

At the bottom, the continent of Australia can be seen clearly.
