During the encounter, the Solid State Imaging Camera (SSI) instrument (Belton et al. 1992a) took several images of the asteroid with the highest resolution of 54 m px-1 (Chapman et al.
5×103 cm-3 at the flyby distance of 3160 km (Morse et al. 2012; Altwegg et al. 2012). The magnetometers did not detect any conclusive signature of the asteroid magnetic field, possibly because of the large flyby distance, below the detection limit. Consequently, only upper limits for the global magnetic properties of Lutetia could be derived. 9×10-7 A m2 kg-1, respectively (Richter et al. 2012).
