  All Eyes on Vesta

All Eyes on Vesta
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA

Uploader comment: NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image of the giant asteroid Vesta with its framing camera on July 9, 2011. It was taken from a distance of about 26,000 miles (41,000 kilometers) away from Vesta, which is also considered a protoplanet because it is a large body that almost became a planet.
