Hayabusa2 after touchdown
Hayabusa2 snapped this picture of Ryugu on on 22 February 2019 at 22:30 UTC. The picture was taken during ascent from less than 30 meters, immediately after touchdown, with the ONC-W1 camera. Hayabusa2's shadow can be seen, along with a dark splotch where the spacecraft's thrusters blew away lighter materials on Ryugu's surface.
