We just got the first view of NASA’s OSIRIS-REx probe carrying its asteroid sample toward Earth.

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Optical Ground Station telescope in the Canary Islands captured a pixelated snapshot of OSIRIS-REx on September 16, eight days before the spacecraft’s sample capsule was scheduled to land in the Utah desert.
