Bennu limb detail
This image shows a view across asteroid Bennu’s southern hemisphere and into space, and it demonstrates the number and distribution of boulders across Bennu’s surface. The image was obtained on 7 March by the OSIRIS-REx PolyCam camera from a distance of about 5 kilometers. The large, light-colored boulder just below the center of the image is about 7.4 meters.
