New Images of Tempel 1!
This just in!
Cropped and sharpened via high pass slightly by yours truly. More to come!
ADDED: Here’s another! Nice lighting here!

Images: NASA/JPL. Some editing by J. Major.
UPDATE: Mission scientists are confident they have found the crater from the 2005 Deep Impact strike, and are excited about the “significant” geographical changes on Tempel 1’s surface visible in the images. Click here for comparison of an apparent flow area on the comet between 2005 and 2011.
