The main geological attractions of Ceres

This collage was compiled by Jet Propulsion Laboratory specialists from images taken by the Dawn mission. It presents the most interesting in geological terms, areas of the dwarf planet Ceres.

In the top row from left to right are shown:
Photograph of Ceres in artificial flowers, showing a variety of substances on its surface. Photo centered on the crater Okkator.
20-kilometer juling crater. There are traces of landslides. According to experts, they are associated with the presence of water ice in the crater.
10 km crater of Oxo. This is the first site of Ceres, where Dawn discovered deposits of water ice. They were naked due to a landslide.
4 km mountain of Akhuna. This is not just the highest point of Ceres, but also a cryovolcan.
In the central row from left to right are shown:
92 km crater Occator. It is here that the brightest clusters of the famous white points of Ceres are located.
Traces of the landslide at the crater Ganan.
34-km crater Haulani. This is one of the youngest percussion formations of Ceres. The colors of the image are artificial.
34 km Kokopelli crater. It contains a large number of ledges, apparently formed as a result of the partial collapse of the substance on the surface of Ceres.
In the bottom row from left to right are shown:
The central part of the crater Occator.
The northern part of the Nar Sulcus fault.
50km Ikapati crater. It is characterized by a rather smooth bottom. Apparently, the blow melted the ice that was here, which then froze again.
South Polar Region of Ceres.
