This view from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows terrain in the southern hemisphere of Ceres. Most of the image is the impact crater named Annona (37 miles, 60 kilometers across); the smaller, prominent crater at upper left is unnamed.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft took this moody scene on Ceres, located within Zadeni Crater, named for the ancient Georgian god of bountiful harvest. Dawn saw Zadeni at approximately 76 miles (120 kilometers) in diameter on June 15, 2016.
This image shows Sekhet Crater, at right, in a shadowy scene from Ceres. Sekhet is 25 miles wide (41 kilometers wide). NASA's Dawn spacecraft took this image on June 15, 2016. A smooth plain surrounds the smaller crater at left.
This image, created using data from NASA's Dawn spacecraft, shows craters (blue markings) called 'cold traps'. These shadowed craters may have been collecting ice for billions of years because they are so cold.
The inset perspective view from NASA's Dawn space of Ceres' bright spot Occator Crator is overlaid with data concerning the composition. Red signifies a high abundance of carbonates, while gray indicates a low carbonate abundance.
This image shows the rim of Ikapati Crater on Ceres, which lies in the dwarf planet's northern hemisphere. Groupings of roughly parallel, narrow, linear fractures can be seen inside and outside the crater.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft imaged this terrain, adjacent to Occator Crater on Ceres, which is immediately to the left of this view. This relatively smooth, lightly cratered area is part of the ejecta blanket of Occator.
