Well Rosetta isn't going to get to 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (Chury) till 2014, but it's not to early to set up a thread. There are a bunch of earth fly-bys, a Mars encounter at 200km in 2007 and a few asteriod passes. Not to mention the mission to land on the comet itself.

Only another nine and a half years to go.

>Lutetia observation in January (At very far distance I guess. Does anyone know the distance ?)
approximately 1.62 AU at January 1, 2007 and increasing up to 1.8 AU by the end of the month.

Quite strange moment for imaging, Rosetta will have tens of "encounters" within 0.1 AU while going through inner parts of Main belt after 2007-2008. Of course , it will be rather small asteroids, smaller than giant Lutetia (almost 100 km long), but yet suitable targets for exporation.

Rosetta will meet Lutetia again on 10 July 2010 for a close flyby (from a distance of 3000 km).
