Zadeni Crater, Ceres

Zadeni Crater, Ceres
Zadeni Crater, Ceres Dawn snapped this picture of Zadeni Crater at an altitude of 920 miles (1,480 kilometers) on Oct. 18, 2016. Dawn was in its second extended mission orbit then. We saw Zadeni higher up (both in altitude and in this Dawn Journal), but here it fills the frame. As we discussed here, the many craters on and in Zadeni indicate it is relatively old. Full image and caption. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA
