Image of 1998 ML14 First post-upgrade image of an asteroid. This delay-Doppler image of asteroid 1998 ML14 was taken on UTC 1998 August 15 12:45. This image is stretched to show detail. More images are available. The illumination is from above, and the vertical scale is 45m/pixel. The horizontal scale is 0.12 Hz/pixel (increasing towards the right), or 63m / cosine(delta), where delta is the (unknown) subradar latitude.
