OSIRIS-REx's approach surveys of asteroid Bennu (enhanced contrast)

OSIRIS-REx's approach surveys of asteroid Bennu (enhanced contrast)
OSIRIS-REx's approach surveys of asteroid Bennu (enhanced contrast) This montage includes images from two full rotation surveys of asteroid Bennu by OSIRIS-REx on 25 and 27 November. The 25 November set was taken from a slightly longer distance than the 65 kilometer-range of the 27 November set. The images were taken from an animation released by the mission. The contrast has been enhanced to emphasize differences among surface materials. NASA / GSFC / UA / Emily Lakdawalla
