Asteroid Vesta rotating. Update: Close-ups

Wired Science brings you the NASA video

Added:  New photograph with detail.
This anaglyph image of Vesta's equator was put together from two clear filter images, taken on July 24, 2011 by the framing camera instrument aboard NASA's Dawn spacecraft. The anaglyph image shows hills, troughs, ridges and steep craters. 

In October , the spaceship will descend to lower orbit and supply higher resolution imagery.
