Vesta rotation movie (smoothed, high-resolution)

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)

Posted 2012/04/20 | 0 comments

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.
