Dawn at Ceres - Framing Camera

The Dawn spacecraft is visiting the dwarf planet Ceres for the time period Dec. 26, 2014 through the end of the extended mission. Framing Camera 1 and Framing Camera 2 are two identical units flying on the Dawn spacecraft, of which FC2 acquired nearly all science data at Vesta and Ceres. The data sets linked below include raw (level 1a) and calibrated (level 1b) versions of all available images acquired during the Ceres Encounter.
