From the apod description:
... The 33 frames of the time compressed animation span about 25 minutes of real time. The stunning gif was constructed from consecutive images taken while Rosetta cruised some 13 kilometers from the comet's nucleus.

So it's Rosetta, not Philae, camera work from 13km distance (compare with the image in an earlier post about its proposed landing site). Seems a bit strange to me but what do I know? :scratch: Apart from still being stunned, that is.
