Bennu's Boulder No. 1
This image, taken by the PolyCam camera on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on 29 March 2019 from a distance of 3.6 kilometers, shows Bennu’s largest boulder. The height of the boulder is 21.7 meters. The image was obtained during Flyby 4B of the mission’s Detailed Survey: Baseball Diamond phase. When the image was taken, the spacecraft was over the northern hemisphere, pointing PolyCam down toward the south.
