Oxo: A small, bright Cerean crater in 3D

A region in Ceres northern' latitudes contains a variety of craters including one small one with a very bright wall and a fainter splash of bright ejecta. North is to the right. It is a combination of two images taken on June 21 and 24, 2015, during the Survey phase of the Ceres mission. The image is about 270 kilometers wide by 240 tall. This crater has been named "Oxo."
