This image provides an overhead view of Bennu’s largest boulder, Boulder No. 1. The image was taken by the MapCam camera on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on April 19, from a distance of 2.2 miles (3.6 km). For scale, the largest boulder is 190 ft (58 m) wide, which is about the width of a soccer field. 

The image was obtained during Flyby 7B of the mission’s Detailed Survey: Baseball Diamond phase. 

When the image was taken, the spacecraft was over the southern hemisphere, pointing MapCam south.
