Hi gang,

I have just been astro trawling the net (nothing unusual there I hear you say, and you'd be correct!) and I found these images and animations from the Philae probe on the comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The resolution on some of these images is mind bogglingly brilliant. At this page the images are acquired from the dizzy height of 9m above the surface and shows the landing point in the most exquisite detail. Take a look for yourself here http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Science/Rosetta/Highlights/Landing_on_a_comet

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
