May 16 Video Touring Vesta's Craters

On May 16th, NASA's Dawn Mission team released a nifty new video of asteroid Vesta. The stitched-together surface images were taken by the Dawn spacecraft from August through November of 2011. The 2-minute and 25-second video presents views of the Rheasilvia basin at Vesta's south pole, the three-crater feature that has come to be known as the "snowman," and Oppia crater, in the southern hemisphere. The video was produced by NASA/JPL-Caltech/
