This OSIRIS narrow-angle camera view was captured by Rosetta on 22 September 2014 from a distance of 28 km. It focuses on the irregular, fractured and stratified morphology of the Seth region of the main body. A wide terrace is seen in the foreground with a deep pit revealing the inner layered skeleton of the comet nucleus.

kenobi-wan-obi: The Brown Ghoul: vdB 141 vdB 141 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Cepheus. Sometimes referred to as the ghost nebula, its awkward name is its catalog number in Sidney van den Bergh’s catalog of reflection nebulae, published in 1966. Several stars are embedded in the nebula. Their light gives it a ghoulish brown color.
