Color global view of Ceres: Urvara and Yalode basins

Color global view of Ceres: Urvara and Yalode basins
Color global view of Ceres: Urvara and Yalode basins This approximately true-color image was taken at 15:27 on May 7, 2015, as Dawn was surveying Ceres in its "Rotation Characterization 3" orbit 13,583 kilometers above the surface. At the terminator, near the top, is Urvara, a large crater with radiating troughs. Closer to the center of the disk is the large Yalode basin, with its flat floor and faint inner ring. Farther down the terminator is the large Mondamin crater. Haulani crater makes a bright splash near the lower right edge of the disk. The cone-shaped Ahuna mons is near center.
