Dantu Crater on Ceres, at top center, is featured in this image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft taken on Oct. 21, 2016. A small crater located around the 5 o'clock position within Dantu is called Centeotl.
This scene viewed by NASA's Dawn spacecraft on Oct. 20, 2016, from Ceres features terrain near the rim of the large crater named Kerwan, at lower left. A much smaller, fresher crater called Cacaguat is seen in the lower right corner.
Sunlit cliffs tower above Yalode Crater on Ceres in this shadowy perspective view. At 152 miles, Yalode is one of Ceres' largest craters. A fissure called Nar Sulcus is seen just right of center. NASA's Dawn spacecraft took this image on Oct. 19, 2016.
This southern hemisphere scene from dwarf planet Ceres encompasses parts of the craters Mondamin and Darzamat. Mondamin is large crater located in the top half of image, Darzamat is at bottom-right. NASA's Dawn spacecraft took this image on Oct. 19, 2016.
Sintana Crater is seen on the left side of this image of Ceres from NASA's Dawn spacercraft. The crater's central peak casts a shadow over its western flank. At lower right, the rim of Darzamat peeks into view.
In this densely cratered area of Ceres, NASA's Dawn spacecraft spotted Tupo Crater, with its complex, hummocky interior, at center right. A portion of the rim of Darzamat Crater appears with dark shadows at lower left.
Kerwan Crater, at 174 miles (280 kilometers) in diameter is the largest crater that NASA's Dawn has discovered on Ceres. A portion of its jagged rim runs from the top left to bottom center of this image.
This image shows a portion of the northern hemisphere of Ceres, as seen by NASA's Dawn spacecraft. Cozobi Crater is the sharply defined impact feature at top left. At far right is Victa Crater. Abellio Crater is sharply defined crater with a central peak.
Zadeni Crater on Ceres is featured in this image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft. This large southern-hemisphere crater is 79.5 miles (128 kilometers) in diameter and is named for an ancient Georgian god of bountiful harvest.
The craters Takel and Cozobi are featured in this image of Ceres from NASA's Dawn spacecraft. Takel is the young crater with bright material on the left of this image, and Cozobi is the sharply defined crater just below center.
This image, taken on Oct. 18, 2016 from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows Occator Crater on Ceres, with its signature bright areas. The central bright spot, which harbors the brightest material on Ceres, is believed by scientists to contain a variety of salts.
This view from NASA's Dawn spacecraft features a lobe-shaped flow feature in Ghanan Crater on Ceres. The flow feature is a place where a crater rim has collapse and material has flowed across the surface.
This image, taken by NASA's Dawn spacecraft, shows Azacca Crater (31 miles, 50 kilometers wide) at top left, with its prominent set of north-south trending fractures. Dawn took this image on Oct. 17, 2016.
The small, bright crater Oxo on Ceres is featured in this image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft taken on Oct. 17, 2016. Oxo (6 miles, 10 kilometers in diameter) is located at mid-latitudes on Ceres and likely has water ice.
This image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows cratered terrain just south of the equator of Ceres. Dawn took this image on June 15, 2016, from its low-altitude mapping orbit, at a distance of about 240 miles (385 kilometers) above the surface.
