Madagascar from LightSail 2
Madagascar from LightSail 2 LightSail 2 captured this image on 24 November 2019. The southern tip of Madagascar appears at right. North is approximately at the bottom of the image. A faint smoke plume can be seen casting a shadow. The sail appears slightly curved due to the spacecraft's 185-degree fisheye camera lens. The image has been color corrected and some of the distortion has been removed. The Planetary Society
