Ceres' shadowed craters

Ceres' shadowed craters
Ceres' shadowed craters Dawn looked down from 240 miles (385 kilometers) on May 27, 2016, at this scene at 73 degrees north latitude. From this location, the sun (which is off the picture, far to the right) never gets high above the horizon. More recently, Dawn has taken long exposures to see into some of the craters that are in persistent shadow. Full image and caption. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA
