Best View Ever of Ceres

Hey Space Placers!

Here is the best view yet of the dwarf planet  - AKA largest asteroid in the asteroid belt - Ceres, taken 2/4/15 by the Dawn spacecraft at a distance of 90,000 miles.

The view is only going to get better day by day as Dawn closes in on Ceres for a March 2015 rendezvous and orbital insertion. Dawn will then begin long term science operations.
