Oblique Composite View of Ryugu's Artificial SCI Crater
This composite view of the region around Ryugu's artificial SCI crater, which is the indentation in the middle of the top image, came from 2 cameras while Hayabusa2 was descending towards its second touchdown at a height of 8 meters on 11 July 2019. The top view is from sideways-looking ONC-W2, and the bottom is from down-looking ONC-W1.
