Photo-atlas of asteroid Vesta based on Low Altitude Mapping Orbit (LAMO) image data
Photo-atlas of asteroid Vesta based on Low Altitude Mapping Orbit (LAMO) image data This atlas of the giant asteroid Vesta was created from images taken as NASA's Dawn mission flew in its Low Altitude Mapping Orbit, at an altitude of about 210 kilometers. The set of maps was created from mosaics of 10,000 images from Dawn's framing camera. Full-resolution photo maps and PDF versions of each map with topographic information are available here.
