    As I mentioned during my talk at the BAA meeting yesterday the mission team are powering up all of the instruments on board Rosetta following its exit from deep space hibernation. The OSIRIS narrow and wide angle cameras (OSIRIS-NAC and OSIRIS-WAC) have just taken their first images of the comet. Since the spacecraft is still 4 million km from the comet the images aren’t specactulr but they do show that everything is working fine. Coincidentally the first NAC image also includes M107.

    The NAC image is here. It is oriented with north at around 10 o’clock and the comet is around 16h 31m 39s, -13 10′ 05″ (2000.0).
