Bright Spotted Crater Rim on Ceres

Bright Spotted Crater Rim on Ceres
Bright Spotted Crater Rim on Ceres Dawn had this view of two adjoining craters on Ceres on March 26 from an altitude of 240 miles (385 kilometers). Reflective material, most likely salt left after ice sublimated, is easily visible. Look carefully inside both craters to see many large boulders (light on the right and dark on the left). Also note what appears to be the remnants of material that flowed to near the middle of the larger crater. Full image and caption. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA
