This map of Ceres, constructed from data collected by NASA's Dawn spacecraft, shows the dwarf planet's surface with features that have been named as of August 14, 2015. This is a simple cylindrical projection centered on 0 degrees east longitude, created by science team members at the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
The most recently named feature is the small crater Kait, after the Hattic goddess of grain. It is a mere 0.2 miles (0.4 kilometers) across.
A full list of crater names on Ceres is available at http://planetarynames.wr.usgs.gov/.
The Dawn mission to Vesta and Ceres is managed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington D.C. UCLA is responsible for overall Dawn mission science.
The Dawn framing cameras have been developed and built under the leadership of the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany, with significant contributions by DLR German Aerospace Center, Institute of Planetary Research, Berlin, and in coordination with the Institute of Computer and Communication Network Engineering, Braunschweig. The framing camera project is funded by the Max Planck Society, DLR, and NASA/JPL.
