Amazing NASA Images Show Dwarf Planet Ceres

NASA's Dawn spacecraft, which has spent the past month orbiting the dwarf planet Ceres, managed to snap the highest-resolution images seen to date of the mysterious planetary body, according to the space agency.
Dawn spent the past month in orbit on the dark side of Ceres, but has now managed to send back photos of the north pole clearly visible due to the Sun.
Ceres is located in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. NASA released the images on Thursday, though they were taken on April 10 from 21,000 miles above the surface of Ceres. According to NASA, the images are the first in a series of increasingly sharper images as Dawn orbits closer, which will provide further insights into the mysterious planetary body.
