A close up of the nucleus of a comet
Ever imagined what a comet was like under all that gas and dust? Perhaps it would look something like this. I based this image on photographs of the nucleus of Comet Halley, taken by the Giotto probe in 1985. But this is just supposed to be a general comet, not actually Halley.
