Some bright spark on Twitter stacked images from the Rosetta mission into a short animated GIF - and it shows snow falling on the surface of Comet 67P:

NOTE:

- Some of the bright background spots are actually stars (very noticeable in the top left and along the right-hand side.
- Also, the streaks are apparently cosmic rays intefering with the film.

But, otherwise, it's still a moving picture of snow falling on the surface of a comet. :)
