This image shows comet Tempel 1 as seen through the clear filter of the medium-resolution camera on NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft. It was taken on July 1, 2005, when the spacecraft was 2,446,529.1 kilometers (1,520,273 miles) away from the comet. Five images were combined together, and a logarithmic stretch was applied to enhance the coma of the comet.
