New Images of Ryugu Asteroid

Between the 11th and the 14th of May, Hayabusa2's star tracker has shot new images of Ryugu asteroid. The full article is available on Hayabusa2 web site in Japanese http://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/topics/20180515/. I report here the images taken from Hayabusa2. The images were taken by stopping the ion engine phase and by changing the attitude of the spacecraft to point Ryugu. Currently new precise Ryugu orbit determination is under analysis to support the navigation.


In the yellow circles, three sequence of images of Ryugu!
