Top panel: comparison of the COPS NG data with our insolation-driven and inhomogeneous outgassing models with an absorbing and a diffusely reflecting nucleus surface over the period from the 29.08. to 23.09.2014. Upper middle panel: cometocentric distance and the phase angle of the observations shown on the same scale showing how the spacecraft approached the comet towards Zone D but at relatively high phase. Middle lower panel: sub-spacecraft latitude (left axis) and longitude (right axis) showing how in Zone D the spacecraft was moving towards the northern pole, which is located in the Hapi region. Bottom panel: sub-spacecraft local time (SCLT) and the local time at the position of the zero longitude meridian (CLT) that runs through Imhotep.
