MAVEN selfie. Lines are sketched in to show approximately where components of the spacecraft are that were not able to be imaged due to the limited motion of the instrument around its support boom. Thrusters can be seen at the lower left and right, the Electra communications antenna at the bottom toward the left, the magnetometer and Sun sensor at the end of the solar panels at the upper left, the tip of the communications antenna at the top middle. In addition, the shadow of the Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph and of its support boom can be seen down the middle of the spacecraft body.
