NASA’s Dawn Probe Photographs Dwarf Planet Ceres

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft is sending back incredible close-ups of the dwarf planet Ceres.

The spacecraft has been circling Ceres since 2015, and in June, it reached its lowest orbit yet, skimming the surface from just 22 miles (35 kilometers) up.

The latest pictures offer unprecedented views of a huge impact crater known for its bright salty deposits, and landslides are clearly visible on the rim.
