Rocks and Boulders near Bennu’s Equator
This image shows the rocky surface of Bennu in a region just south of the asteroid’s equator. The PolyCam camera on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft took the image on 7 March 2019 from a distance of 4.8 kilometers. The width of the field of view is 56.4 meters of Bennu’s surface. For scale, the cracked rock at the top of the image is 21 meters long, which is about the length of four parallel parking spots. The image was obtained during Flyby 1 of the mission’s Detailed Survey: Baseball Diamond phase. Instrument Used: OCAMS (PolyCam)
