LightSail 2 image of Cuba and Bahamas This image taken by The Planetary Society's LightSail 2 spacecraft on 5 May 2020 shows Cuba and the Bahamas. North is approximately at left. The Moon is the dot at upper left. Pieces of fishing line-like material called Spectraline that held the spacecraft’s solar panels closed prior to sail deployment can be seen at upper left and right. This image has been color-adjusted and some distortion from the camera’s 180-degree fisheye lens has been removed. The Planetary Society
