LAMO image 25 has been released to the JPL Photojournal.

LAMO 25 features a smaller unnamed crater within the interior of mid-sized Meanderi crater. Mass wasting is present around the rim of the crater, a common feature across Ceres, in craters of this size and larger. Mass wasting such as this results from unstable soil, giving way to gravitational forces. As with much of the Cerian surface, the imaged region appears mostly saturated with cratering, suggesting it has been static to geologic processes for billions of years. As noted in the Photojournal entry, the imaged region is centered at approximately 39.5 degrees south latitude, 197 degrees east longitude.
