LightSail 2 North of Australia (Camera 2, Processed)
This processed image from LightSail 2 was captured on 29 August 2019 at 23:54 UTC as the spacecraft passed north of Australia. The raw, unprocessed image, which shows more of the spacecraft's adjacent solar panel in the upper-right, is available here. This is a pair to an image taken 1 minute later by camera 2. Australia's Gulf of Carpentaria is visible in the lower left.
