Sunlit cliffs tower on Ceres
This image of Ceres, taken by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft, shows sunlit cliffs towering above the Yalode Crater. At 152 miles (260 kilometers) in diameter, Yalode is one of Ceres’ largest craters.
Yalode is adjacent to another large crater, Urvara and it is named after the Dahomeyan deity of the yam harvest, Yalodé.
Dawn took this image on Oct. 19, 2016, at a distance of about 920 miles (1,480 kilometers) above the surface.
