Part of Yalode Crater, Ceres

Part of Yalode Crater, Ceres
Part of Yalode Crater, Ceres Dawn took this picture of a part of Yalode Crater from an altitude of 915 miles (1,470 kilometers) in its third mapping orbit on Sept. 27, 2015. At 162 miles (260 kilometers) across, Yalode is the second largest crater on Ceres (and too large to be captured with a single picture even from this high). Note the distinctly polygonal craters, including the largest one on the right, Lono, which is 12 miles (20 kilometers) wide. Below Lono is Besua Crater, with a diameter of 11 miles (17 kilometers). Full image and caption. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA
