There's an interactive map of Vesta, using Dawn images, available below:

It has all sorts of neat features. Check it out for yourself!

Tomorrow is the anniversary of Heinrich Olbers' discovery of 4 Vesta (in 1807). He named the object for the Roman goddess of the hearth. I wonder what he would make of Vesta Trek!
