LightSail 2 image of northern Brazil
LightSail 2 image of northern Brazil This image taken by The Planetary Society's LightSail 2 spacecraft on 2 September 2020 shows northern Brazil. North is approximately at the top, along with the brown, silty outflow of the Amazon River delta. A piece of fishing line-like material called Spectraline that held the spacecraft’s solar panels closed prior to sail deployment can be seen in the upper-right. This image has been color-adjusted and some distortion from the camera’s 180-degree fisheye lens has been removed. The Planetary Society
