Deep Impact gets first look at Hartley 2

NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft flew 700 kilometers, or 435 miles, from comet Hartley 2 on Thursday morning. These five images were the first snapshots returned from the probe more than 13 million miles away from Earth.

All five images were captured with Deep Impact's medium-resolution camera between 1358 GMT and 1401 GMT.
