Oxo Crater at LAMO
The 10-kilometer-wide crater named Oxo Crater is the second-brightest feature on Ceres. Only Occator's central area is brighter. Oxo lies near the 0 degree meridian that defines the edge of many Ceres maps, making this small feature easy to overlook. NASA's Dawn spacecraft took this image in its low-altitude mapping orbit (LAMO), at a distance of 385 kilometers. The image has been rotated so that north on Ceres is up.
