Moody Bennu
Moody Bennu This image of Bennu was captured on 13 June 2019, shortly after OSIRIS-REx executed its second orbital insertion maneuver to arrive in a 680-meter circular orbit around the asteroid. At this distance, details as small as 50 centimeters across can be resolved in the center of the Navcam image. From the spacecraft’s vantage point in orbit, half of Bennu is sunlit and half is in shadow. Bennu’s largest boulder can also be seen protruding from the southern hemisphere.
