Farewell look at the Moon from OSIRIS-REx
OSIRIS-REx took the data for this image of the Moon on September 25, 2017, at a distance of 1.2 million kilometers, three days after the spacecraft's Earth flyby. The image looks slightly blurry because it has been enlarged by a factor of two from the original resolution of the data. We see predominantly lunar farside terrain, with Tsiolkovskiy crater at lower right and Mare Moscoviense at upper right. On the center left is the round Mare Crisium.

Most NASA images are in the public domain. Reuse of this image is governed by NASA's image use policy.

Original image data dated on or about September 25, 2017
