Approach images to asteroid Lutetia   Approach Images of Asteroid Lutetia
Individual images show the approach to asteroid Lutetia by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft. The images were acquired on July 10, 2010, with the largest view taken as Rosetta came within 80,000 kilometers (50,000 miles) of the asteroid on its way to closest approach.
