Rosetta at asteroid Lutetia
Around the same time Spain was beating the Netherlands in the World Cup, the comet chasing spacecraft Rosetta passed close by asteroid Lutetia.
You can read the story and see some fantastic images at the ESA website, and you can download images from here.
I made a 3D anaglyph from two consecutive images using the GIMP, they asteroid rotated too much for a good 3D effect, but you can still see the cental blug quite well.
