LightSail 2 High-Resolution Deployment Sequence, Camera 1
LightSail 2 High-Resolution Deployment Sequence, Camera 1 These high-resolution images were captured by LightSail 2's camera 1 during sail deployment on 23 July 2019. A fully deployed sail image was added at right. The sail appears slightly curved due to the spacecraft's 185-degree fisheye camera lens; no corrections have been made to the pictures.
