OREx image upload


Thank you for joining the Desert Fireball Network in tracking and triangulating NASA’s OSIRIS-REx during its Earth Gravity Assist.


Australia has front row seats for this slingshot event, giving our observation community the best opportunity to see and photograph the spacecraft as it passes over our skies – the last time until it returns to Earth in 2023 carrying a sample from asteroid Bennu.


Images submitted can contribute to the DFN creating a 3D triangulated path of OREx – and will be formally credited in our submission to our NASA partners – so thank you for participating in planetary science in Australia!
