Ceres from Dawn's Survey Orbit
NASA's Dawn spacecraft acquired this image of dwarf planet Ceres from an altitude of 4,400 kilometers. The image, with a resolution of 410 meters per pixel, was taken on June 25, 2015. This area shows relatively few craters, suggesting it is younger than some other areas on Ceres. Some bright spots are visible, although they are not as prominent as the most famous bright spots.

Most NASA images are in the public domain. Reuse of this image is governed by NASA's image use policy.

Original image data dated on or about June 25, 2015
