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.
