With the help NASA’s Dawn spacecraft , astronomers can receive 20 new images of Vesta asteroid, on June 1.The images show a dark feature near Vesta’s equator moving from left to right across the field of view as Vesta rotates. They also show Vesta’s jagged, irregular form , hinting at the enormous crater known to exist at Vesta’s south pole.The images were obtained by a framing camera during a 30-minute period, which show about 30 degrees of a rotation, and have to say that the pixel size in these images is closer the resolution of the best Hubble Space Telescope images of Vesta.
