Today’s Image of the Day from the Europea Space Agency features 46P Wirtanen, which is a small comet that was the original target of the ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft.
Instead, 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko became the first comet to be explored by a human spacecraft and probe.
This image was captured on December 9, 2018 by photographer Ollie Taylor on the Dorset Jurassic Coast.
