NASA's Dawn spacecraft spied this relatively smooth area of Ceres' surface, which includes the feature named Dalien Tholus -- a dome-shaped feature visible in top right quadrant of the image.

The image is centered at approximately 2.5 degrees north latitude, 4.3 degrees east longitude.

Dawn took this image on May 28, 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.
