Bennu from all angles montage, 2 November 2018
This set of images shows the asteroid Bennu rotating for one full revolution. Over 4 hours and 11 minutes on 2 November 2018, OSIRIS-REx's PolyCam acquired a 2.5-millisecond image for every 10 degrees of the asteroid’s rotation. At the time of imaging, Bennu was approximately 197 km from the spacecraft, and appeared approximately 200 pixels wide in PolyCam’s frame.
