  Mosiaic showing dark material near snowman craters on Vesta
This mosaic from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft shows dark material near a series of craters known as the “snowman” on Vesta. That ejected material is a complex mixture of components.

  Topography of a portion of the wall and interior of the Rheasilvia impact basin
This animation made from data obtained by NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows the topography of a portion of the wall and interior of the Rheasilvia impact basin (310 miles or 500 kilometers in diameter) in Vesta's south-polar region.
