This image shows the comets inner coma in detail. Imaged with the 2m Faulkes North Telescope, as we near the spacecraft flyby on the 4th november, UK schools and astronomers will be pointing this large research telescope at the comet for an entire day, which should vividly show the coma structure and comet rotation.
