This animation of the dwarf planet Ceres was made by combining images taken by NASA's Dawn spacecraft on Jan. 25, 2015. The spacecraft's framing camera took these images, at a distance of about 147,000 miles (237,000 kilometers) from Ceres, and they represent the highest-resolution views to date of the dwarf planet. | NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA
