    Default NASA snaps stunning picture of asteroid Bennu from only 0.4 miles away



    NASA released the closest shot of the near-Earth asteroid 101955, Bennu, earlier this week. The picture, taken by the space agency's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, was shot from a distance of 0.4 miles, or 690 meters, above Bennu on Jan. 17, 2019. In the image, half of Bennu is sunlit and half is in shadow. "Bennu’s largest boulder can also be seen protruding from the southern hemisphere," NASA said in a press release.
