This image from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft records an oblique look across Ceres towards the limb of the dwarf planet. The ion-propelled Dawn probe has been exploring Ceres, the largest body in the asteroid belt, since March 2015.
The image was taken on 13 June 2016, from its low-altitude mapping orbit, at a distance of about 385 kilometres (240 miles) above the surface. The image resolution is 35 metres (120 feet) per pixel. The scene is centred at approximately 10 degrees north latitude, 284 degrees east longitude and was taken from above an equatorial region east of Kirnis Crater.
