Is the object a piece of ice or something more ? Image Credit: ESA
An object described as a 'metallic disc' has turned up in a close-up photograph of the comet.
Eagle eyed Internet users have spotted something rather unusual in one of the photographs returned by the European Space Agency's Rosetta space probe which recently reached Comet 67P after traveling for more than a decade across the solar system.
The object, which resembles a light-colored circular feature, can be seen against the otherwise dark background of the comet and looks decidedly different to its surroundings.
Some people have suggested that the anomaly may be nothing more than a chunk of ice while others have subscribed to a rather more otherworldly interpretation.
