  Vesta - Light and shadow

Vesta - Light and shadow

Uploader comment: This Dawn FC (framing camera) image shows an area in Vesta’s northern hemisphere that has been illuminated more by the sun than yesterday’s image of the day. More of the landscape in this image has been illuminated because this area is located at a slightly lower latitude than yesterday’s image of the day.
