Dawn | Views From LAMO

The Dawn spacecraft is in low altitude mapping orbit (LAMO) around the dwarf planet Ceres at an altitude of 240 mi (385 km), closer than the Space Station orbits Earth. Amazing detail is being imaged and analyzed. Some of those features are highlighted in this brief Jet Propulsion Lab video. Visit this link for previous posts about Dawn.

  1. Hi Jim, fascinating photo and video. Seems like an inhospitable world. I am going to hold off getting a ticket to visit. However, I look forward to all of the incredible photos Dawn will be sending back. I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend. Bob

I'd like to hear from you.
