Rosetta’s Comet, Now in 3-D by NANCY ATKINSON on AUGUST 14, 2014 A 3-D image from the Rosetta spacecraft showing Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and its boulder-strewn ‘neck’ region. Also visible is an exposed cliff face and numerous crater-like depressions. Credit: ESA/Rosetta/MPS for OSIRIS Team MPS/UPD/LAM/IAA/SSO/INTA/UPM/DASP/IDA.

A anaglyph of the Rosetta Comet made from OSIRIS images and another one acquired 17 minutes earlier, creating a stereo version that is viewable with standard red and blue paper glasses.

University of Maryland scientists found 18 pits on comet (one shown). They are thought to form when ice evaporates and the surface collapses. Some of them are several hundred metres deep.

Comet in grayscale. So we've all assumed that the comet is actually gray. However, a new photo taken by Rosetta shows the comet in its true colors: a reddish brown. Photo taken by Rosetta's OSIRIS camera. - Comet Full Color Cleaned up in Photoshop.

From these close-up shots by Rosetta, scientists have learned just how varied the surface of Comet 67P truly is. Here  you can see a smooth featureless region called "Ash" in the foreground right next to a more rugged, layered region called "Seth" shown in the background to the left.
