This view of Ceres from NASA Dawn spacecraft shows cratered terrain located immediately to the west of the intriguing mountain feature called Ahuna Mons.

North on Ceres is up. A linear feature cuts across the scene from south to north-northwest. A small crater in the northern portion of the image is surrounded by asymmetric ejecta, composed of a mixture of light and dark material.

A small crater at center right (east) displays steep flanks and a hummocky floor.

The image was taken from a spacecraft altitude of 915 miles (1,470 kilometers) in Dawn's High Altitude Mapping Orbit phase (HAMO) on Oct. 7, 2015. Image resolution is 450 feet (140 meters) per pixel.

The image is located at 2 degrees north latitude, 304 degrees east longitude.
