OSIRIS-REx PolyCam view of Earth just after flyby

OSIRIS-REx PolyCam view of Earth just after flyby
OSIRIS-REx PolyCam view of Earth just after flyby When MapCam could see all of Earth, the higher-resolution PolyCam saw just a part of Earth. This image shows parts of Canada’s Northwest Territories, including Great Bear Lake right of and below center. High clouds cast shadows, blurring the distinction between cloudy skies above and snow-covered surface below. The photo was taken on 22 September 2017 at a range of 161,000 kilometers.
