Ikapati Crater on Ceres is seen at top right in this image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft. Ikapati has a complex of central peaks and roughly parallel fractures on its floor. The crater, named for a Philippine goddess of cultivated lands, measures 31 miles (50 kilometers) in diameter.

Dawn took this image on Oct. 24, 2016, during its second extended-mission science orbit (XMO2), from a distance of about 920 miles (1,480 kilometers) above the surface of Ceres. The image resolution is about 460 feet (140 meters) per pixel.
