Hayabusa2 SCI artificial crater site
This panorama of Ryugu's surface near the artificial SCI crater was created using 2 images captured by Hayabusa2 at heights of 500 and 600 meters on 16 May 2019 during an aborted target marker drop attempt. The SCI crater can be seen as a dark splotch in the upper right.
