The view will get even BETTER as the Dawn spacecraft edges lower and lower to its altitude of 900 miles which will happen in mid-August.

Wow, what a year we have had so far in the solar system - Pluto flyby, Dawn, Rosetta. And the best is yet to come in all of these missions. New Horizons is sending data back, Ceres will get down low and Rosetta flying in formation with Comet 67P reaches closest approach to the Sun next week.
