Abstract

Images obtained during the NEAR spacecraft flyby of 433 Eros in December 1998 reveal a curved object, of a mean size and shape close to those inferred from lightcurve and radar data. The resolution of the images was sufficient to identify landmarks and establish a surface-based coordinate system.
