Dawn captured 64 images of Vesta over one rotation period (a little more than 5 hours) from a distance of 5,200 kilometers on July 24, 2011, making a movie of its rotation. In this 720p native resolution version, Tayfun Öner has tweened the images, making the rotation appear smoother.

Vesta's "Snowman" (3D)

To make this 3D view of the "Snowman" crater chain on Vesta, Tayfun Öner first created a global 3D model of Vesta from the Dawn mission's rotation movie, then mapped a higher-resolution image of the snowman to it, then rendered two views of the craters from two different perspectives and combined them into a red-blue anaglyph.
