Color global view of Ceres: Oxo and Haulani craters
This approximately true-color image was taken at 4:13 on May 4, 2015, as Dawn was surveying Ceres in its "Rotation Characterization 3" orbit 13,642 kilometers above the surface. Oxo crater makes a small bright splash near center; Haulani is the larger one to its right. Near the bottom of the disk is the odd cone-shaped mountain, Ahuna mons.
