Dawn Rendezvous With Vesta Rock animation

I saved individual frames from Dawn simulator images covering 2 weeks as the spacecraft arrived at Vesta and created a Dawn rendezvous set at Flickr.  Play them as a slideshow! (Let the slideshow run once first to download the images, then it should run faster on replay.  For me, slides display at 3 second intervals, resulting in a two minute animation.  Your flickerage will vary.)
Simulation courtesy of Gregory J. Whiffen, JPL.  I encourage him to do an official time-lapse, once he has time out from frequent Vesta texture map updates.  He has other Dawn viewpoint sims and charts at http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov/mission/live_shots.asp

This animation is made of frames from this feed:
