This view from NASA's Dawn spacecraft captures the southeast rim of Dantu Crater. Bright material can be seen in some places along the walls. A network of fractures in the crater floor is visible at upper right. Dawn previously imaged the whole of Dantu from a higher-altitude mapping orbit (see PIA19993).

The image is centered at approximately 20 degrees north latitude, 142 degrees east longitude. Dawn captured the scene on Dec. 20, 2015 from its low-altitude mapping orbit (LAMO), at an approximate altitude of 240 miles (385 kilometers) above Ceres. The image resolution is 120 feet (35 meters) per pixel.
