The spacecraft is currently in a terminator orbit around Bennu – traveling approximately 1 km above the asteroid’s surface. The accuracy of the May 26 orbit recapture maneuver (R4R) – performed after the Recon C flyover of site Osprey – allowed the team to waive the two trim burns that were originally scheduled for this week. The spacecraft is circling Bennu clockwise (as viewed from the sun), and will remain in this orbit for the upcoming weeks.
