Rosseta had closest approach to asteroid Lutetia today (this asteroid is about 100km in diameter, as far as I know) and is about 450 million km from Earth at present. Rosseta has been enroute for six years. Its evental mission is landing a probe on a comet in 2014.

I like the image with Saturn in the background.
