Templ

Comet Templ 1 is seen here by the Deep Impact mission's flyby craft seconds after the impactor collided with the comet. Scattered light from the collision saturated the camera's detector, creating the bright splash seen here. Spokes of light radiate from the impact site, while the rest of the comet is illuminated by the Sun. Credit: NASA
