This image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows the dramatic-looking crater named Haulani on Ceres. This relatively young crater was named for a Hawaiian plant goddess, and measures 19 miles (31 kilometers) in diameter. The crater features a central ridge and streaks of bright material on its walls. Ejected material from the crater's formation blankets the surrounding area, muting the appearance of older impact features.

Dawn took this image on Oct. 14, 2015, from an altitude of 915 miles (1,470 kilometers). It has a resolution of 450 feet (140 meters) per pixel.
