Yesterday’s passage of the NASA spacecraft Stardust-NExT by Comet Tempel 1 was apparently quite successful. Below is an image from that mission.

I’ve created charts of Comet Tempel 1 as viewed from north of the solar system and from Earth. You can see them by clicking: http://www.curtrenz.com/comets
