Summary

Dantu Crater on Ceres, at top center, is featured in this image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft. Dantu, whose diameter is 77 miles (124 kilometers), has a central complex of mountain peaks. Small patches of bright material can be seen in some places along the crater walls and floor. A small crater (4-miles, 6-kilometers wide) located around the 5 o'clock position within Dantu is called Centeotl. This crater is named for the Mexican deity of maize and agriculture. Dawn took this image on Oct. 21, 2016, from its second extended-mission science orbit (XMO2), at a distance of about 920 miles (1,480 kilometers) above the surface. The image resolution is about 460 feet (140 meters) per pixel. http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA21242
