Fly Over Occator

Thanks the the Dawn spacecraft we can take a “fly-over” of Occator crater on the dwarf-planet Ceres. The bight areas are may have been produced by upwelling of salt-rich liquids after the impact that formed the crater.

The animation was produced by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Original music by Stefan Elgner, DLR.
