Image of asteroid Vesta obtained by the Dawn spacecraft on July 24, 2011
In this movie, strung together from a series of images provided by the framing camera on NASA's Dawn spacecraft, we see a full rotation of Vesta. These images were obtained on July 24, 2011, from a distance of about 3,200 miles (5,200 kilometers).

  Composite image showing the comparative sizes of eight asteroids
This composite image shows the comparative sizes of eight asteroids. Up until now, Lutetia, with a diameter of 81 miles (130 kilometers), was the largest asteroid visited by a spacecraft, which occurred during a flyby.
