Asteroid Bennu ejecting particles NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Lockheed Martin This view of asteroid Bennu ejecting particles from its surface on January 19, 2019, was created by combining two images taken by the NavCam 1 imager onboard NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft: a short exposure image that shows the asteroid clearly and a long exposure image that shows the particles clearly. Other image processing techniques were also applied, such as cropping and adjusting the brightness and contrast of each layer.
