Animation Shows Topography on Ceres

 

 
PSI’s David O’Brien made this Ceres topographic globe animation. 
 
This color coded map from NASA’s Dawn mission shows the highs and lows of topography on the surface of the dwarf planet Ceres.
 
The color scale extends 3.7 miles (6 kilometers) below the surface in purple to 3.7 miles (6 kilometers) above the surface in brown. Bright  “white” features do not represent elevation.
