This view of Ceres from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows the rim of Sintana Crater (36 miles, 58 kilometers wide). Sinatana is also seen in PIA20149, an image taken from a higher altitude earlier in Dawn's mission.

The image is centered at approximately 47 degrees south latitude, 43 degrees east longitude.

Dawn took this image on May 27, 2016, from its low-altitude mapping orbit, at a distance of about 240 miles (385 kilometers) above the surface. The image resolution is 120 feet (35 meters) per pixel.
