Ceres grows in Dawn's forward view (as of February 4, 2015) These four views of Ceres were captured on December 1, 2014 from 1.2 million kilometers, and on January 13, January 25, and February 4, 2015 from 383,000, 237,000, and 145,000 kilometers away, respectively. Ceres appears to grow as Dawn gets closer. The brightness and contrast of the images has been adjusted so that they match each other. NASA / JPL / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA / Emily Lakdawalla
