Web posted at: 4:15 p.m. EST (2115 GMT)

NASA and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory on Monday released the second in a series of "flyover movies" of asteroid Eros, captured by the NEAR Shoemaker spacecraft.

The latest series of images, acquired March 7, show the zero-degree longitude end of the asteroid and its western hemisphere from a range of 205 kilometers (127 miles). The northern hemisphere is toward the bottom of the frame and the southern hemisphere is toward the top, according to a JHUAPL statement.
