Vesta's Color Palette
Vesta has a beautiful rainbow colored palette. The colors are supposedly because of various rocks and mineral types. Vesta's iron core makes it like a terrestrial planet.

WOW, those colors are really vibrant and different from other pictures I've seen of extraterrestrial bodies. They almost seem fake. I wonder what minerals give off those colors.

These colors really are beautiful. I love looking at these because we've seen many photos like this is discussion, but I don't recall seeing one of an asteroid.
