Japan’s Hayabusa2 spacecraft captured this image of the asteroid Ryugu (and its own shadow) on the night of Sept. 20, 2018, when the probe was about 440 feet (135 meters) above the space rock’s surface. Hayabusa2 was descending at the time, preparing to deploy the two tiny MINERVA-II1 hopping rovers toward Ryugu’s surface.
