It is possible that the window will show a sphere (or shape model) with a latitude-longitude grid, indicating the orientation of the asteroid in the images (rather than the position of the asteroid), or when closer in, the position of the WA image on the asteroid.

What follows is the translation of the pop-up caption of the display area, to the best of my ability, and as precisely
as possible.

"The position and the size of Ryugu as seen by the camera. In the vicinity of Ryugu Hayabusa will be
approaching it while capturing Ryugu's external appearance."

Position? , why should it matter?
Size?, we know it by now.

From now on, the asteroid's gravity will dominate the area (Hill area: within about 90 km from the asteroid) will enter!
