Single image. The right frame is the whole field of view. The spacecraft is only sending the bit with the image and the data of where that is within the frame. Cuts data usage. Expect it to go full frame later.

I sit corrected. Always welcome understanding.

I /thought/ there was going to be a CubeSat following along. Ejected in such a way that it did a fly-by rather than intercept.

That team did the job!
 
I was literally in tears watching that.

An example of what can happen when people work together. Rather than pull each other down.

Crabs in a barrel doesn't scale.

Expect the first return of the cube sat images tomorrow or the next day.

In case anybody missed it, [URL="https://fallingstar.com/home.php"]ATLAS [/URL] (Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System) got some good images. This YouTube is from the ATLAS footage: [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPaaDSIS-tY[/url]

Bruce Willis on board?

With a ton of TNT or something?

If not, no fun... :razz:

Looks like it did something other than kick up a lot of dust.

Yep, we changed the direction, like [URL="https://www.youtube.com/shorts/eVDoByntYYs"]Trevor said[/URL], before it was not going in our direction. Now it is... :razz:

Space is hard...
 
I happened to come across [URL="https://www.space.com/spacex-starlink-satellite-loss-space-weather-forecast"]this article.[/URL]

Horror vacui.
