NASA-LMT: Video Images of a Tumbling Orbital Object


      Time series of white light video images acquired with the NASA-LMT using the 40mm 2nd generation

      Micro-Channel Plate (MCP) intensified digital video camera. The field of view is 0.444 degrees in

      diameter and the interval between frames is 0.033 seconds. This is an image of a rotating object which

      when oriented appropriately yields a specular reflection of the sun. The limiting apparent magnitude with

      this detector is approximately 16.5.
