This view of the Cerean crater Victa was captured by NASA Dawn spacecraft on Dec. 19, 2015. The steep-walled crater is approximately 19 miles 30 kilometers in diameter, and was named for the Roman goddess of food and nourishment.

Dawn took this image 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.
