Dawn images of north pole of Ceres

The Dawn spacecraft snapped a series of images of Ceres, the largest member of the asteroid belt, on April 10, roughly one month after entering orbit. The images are looking down on the north pole from a distance of about 21,000 miles (33,000 km). Dawn is scheduled to begin full science observations of Ceres later this month, when it has moved closer to the dwarf planet.
