Assorted Rocks in Northern Hemisphere

This image shows a region of smaller rocks and boulders located in asteroid Bennu’s northern hemisphere. The image was taken by the PolyCam camera on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on July 3, from a distance of 0.4 miles (0.7 km). The field of view is 33 ft (10.1 m). For scale, the bright boulder in the center of the image is 3 ft (1 m) across, which is about the size of a television. The image was obtained during the mission’s Orbital B phase. When the image was taken, the spacecraft was over the northern hemisphere, pointing PolyCam straight down.
