Visit Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko?

Earth Sky News tells us the Rosetta spacecraft is poised to land on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on September 30. It's not really clear from the web page if we can watch, but it reads as if cameras will be on during its descent and landing on the comet. No instructions for viewing except for; "On September 30, there will be a short transmission confirming Rosetta’s impact on the comet. It will be streamed via the three links just above."

I'll try and remember to watch.

I have to say the photos provided are not what I would have expected a comet to look like as I'd always heard they were big balls of ice.
