The shape at this point reminds me more of Balok's warning buoy...

Amazing, the diversity that we see in small bodies.

This is what granular NaCl (table salt) looks like under a microscope.

We're now less than 100 km from the asteroid, and the asteroid's size should be about 100 pixels in Hayabusa 2's camera.

The approach speed has slowed a lot to 0.28ms, which of course is sensible.

I had an interesting experience today. As usual, I accessed the main web page of Hayabusa 2 and the speed was
something like 53m/s, very slow as somebody remarked, at walking pace, and then I doubted my vision.

The number in the speed of 53m/s seemed to have changed in a very short while my eyes were off the display
unit. I was not sure if the number that I was seeing was the number that I had seen, so I kept watching and
within a few seconds I realised that the number was indeed changing in front of my eye balls.

In fact, the speed kept going down over the next 30 or 40 seconds. It kept going down, and down, until it
reached 28m/s and it is staying there.

This episode was around PM12:38 or 12:39 local JST today (20 June 2018).

My current hope is that since the home height is 20km, and the remaining distance shown is as far as to that
home position we may start seeing something on the Haya2 control panell display window for OCN-W1 at around
30,40km height, no?

There is also something else I now understand about the speed. The speed shown on the main web page is the
absolute value of the vector quantity and the actual speed of approaching Ryugu is the projetion, hence
can be slower (usually).

At this rate of going, though, we may be having a clear view of Ryugu within the next 24 hours?

I guess you forgot a dot: 0.53 m/s ; it's now moving very slow, just 53 cm/s, or 2 km/h (just a walk)

I think they are not realtime data, but simulated data got from here:
http://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/hy2sc2/data/hy2_trj.txt

But they periodically update these data, so probably data "before today" are actual recorded data, data "after today" are "scheduled operations".

I see a speed change in simulator at 03:40, and difference between GMT and JST is exactly 9 hours, hence simulator raw data are expressed in GMT timezone:

Please note that the probe slightly accelerates between TCMs.
Additionally, if you plot position on a chart, you can see how the horizontal position slightly changes: they declared it's done to allow enough parallax to better determining positioning of the asteroid in 3d space.

Thank you!, mcmcmc

Yes, from -0.841 to -0.275 in z direction noted. I hope, though, that we are looking at real recorded data from
the probe, not simulated data from 30km away from my house here on the ground. ISAS control room is not far
from my house.

Your data set suggests that in 2 days' time on 22 June Hayabusa 2 will reach 45km position, and 27km position
on 24th, and finally the home position with a residual Z velocity of 0.000105m/s.

My gut feeling then is that we will begin to see something on ONC-W1 after 24 hours from now, we will have to,
because even the wide angle camera must be able to see Ryugu from a distance of less than 50km!

I am pleased to report that the display window for OCN-W1 on the Haya 2 control panell has been switched on.

There is nothing yet to be seen, but this display area has been totally dark until now. It is now bright, as you can
see below.

Just in case visitors new here wonder how to get to ONC-W1 display window here follows its URL.
