Astronomy Tuesday

It's baaaack!

When we last saw comet C67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko several years ago, the Rosetta probe had landed on it and managed to send back several images before self-destructing.

Its 6.4 year orbit takes it out beyond the orbit of Jupiter but it's approaching the sun again and will be visible through a telescope over the next few months.
