According to Dawn (who ought to know) the descent to the next mapping orbit is beginning now.

"NASA_Dawn NASA's Dawn Mission

I'm done with Survey science operations today!! Time for a several-week transfer down to High Altitude Mapping Orbit (HAMO)!!

20 hours ago"


Better pics on the way! Thanks, Dawn team, for the pictures so far. Will we learn of any preliminary nomenclature soon?

Phil
