Recon B Flyover of Sample Site Nightingale

During the Recon B flyover of primary sample collection site Nightingale, OSIRIS-REx left its safe-home orbit to fly over the sample site at an altitude of 0.4 miles (620 m). The pass, which took 11 hours, gave the spacecraft’s onboard instruments the opportunity to take the closest-ever science observations of the site.
