The best set of grooves on any object since Phobos. This has to put an end to the 'grooves caused by Mars ejecta' argument. fantastic object and a wonderful data set. And this is just the highest priority data, all the rest still to come.

Never seen before: an asteroid with a planet in its background... and it's not ITS "own" planet!

Very first thing I thought when seeing these as well, Phil.

The image with Saturn in the distance... ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif (I think ESA's figuring out this outreach business...)

Sweet, Gordan! smile.gif

So far, gotta say that Rosetta would be a frontrunner choice if I was allowed to ride along with a spacecraft (remember the Mars flyby pic?)

Some parts of that terrain look so smooth, it reminds me of one MRO image where the surface imaged is so smooth you get the effect the camera is out of focus (and only a crater here and there broke that illusion).

Strange, It looks like shadows. The first is clearly elongated. Optical errors or real shadows ?

Totally agree. It has a very "Phobosian" look about it. If I may coin a phrase.

Fantastic flyby! Evidently NAC camera worked flawlessly.

Some smooth areas - possible landslides ?

Don't worry. If there wasn't Gordan will provide one. tongue.gif

I'm kicking myself now because when I looked at the last few approach shots I thought I saw linear features that might be Phobos-like grooves (at the bottom of the images) but didn't have the courage to post.
