A landslide in Ceres' far north in 3D

Near Ceres' north pole, an asteroid crashed into the steep rim of a hexagonal-shaped crater, causing a large landslide. This 3D image has been rotated to place north down in order to make the lighting more intuitive, and upsized by a factor of two. The whole image is about 125 kilometers across. It is a combination of two images taken on June 21 and 24, 2015, during the Survey phase of the Ceres mission More formats: Left stereo | Right stereo | Flicker gif

This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D.

Combination of images PIA19592 and PIA19593.
