  • Abstract A thin, bright dust cloud, which is associated with the Rosetta mission target object (67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko), was observed after the 2002 perihelion passage. The neckline structure or dust trail nature of this cloud is controversial. In this paper, we definitively identify the dust trail and the neckline structure using a wide-field CCD camera attached to the Kiso 1.05-m Schmidt telescope. The dust trail of 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko was evident as scattered sunlight in all images… CONTINUE READING
