The image shows Vesta from the south polar region (to the lower right) to about 30°N. The image was taken through the panchromatic filter on July 24, 2011 as part of a rotation characterisation sequence (RC3); it has a scale of about 400 metres per pixel and shows impact craters of different sizes, grooves parallel to the equator and north of it, as well as dark features within some of the craters.
