Dawn Spacecraft of Ceres Shows Towering Mountain

Each orbit of Ceres made by the Dawn spacecraft tells us just a bit more of the dwarf planet. Earlier this week, NASA released a fantastic new image of Ceres’ terrain, with a resolution of 1,400 feet per pixel. The image shows some new features, including a 3 mile tall mountain!
