NASA’s Dawn booster speckled this tall, conical towering on Ceres from a stretch of 915 miles (1,470 kilometers). The mountain, located in a southern hemisphere, stands 4 miles (6 kilometers) high. Its fringe is neatly defined, with roughly no amassed waste during a bottom of a brightly streaked slope.
