The images were taken on April 10 from a distance of 21,000 miles or 33,000 km.
Ceres average diameter is about 590 miles or 950 km, making it the largest body in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Ceres received her name from its finder, Father Piazzi, who named it after the Roman goddess of agriculture and harvest.
Ceres was downgraded to asteroid after more but smaller objects turned up. But in 2006 it was declared a dwarf planet.
Dawn arrived at Ceres on March 6 and has spent one month orbiting the dwarf planet Ceres.
The photos send by the spacecraft are the sharpest photos, showing the sunlit North Pole of the planetoid.
The Dawn spacecraft is at the distance of 13,500 km from the Ceres and it is going to maintain that distance until May 9, when it will move closer to the planet.
In 2010 and 2011 the spacecraft has explored the giant asteroid Vesta for 14 months.
This spacecraft is the only spacecraft which has orbited two extraterrestrial targets.
One of the pictures shows Ceres as dark and brownish ball with both white spots clearly visible.
Scientists use the technique to highlight subtle color differences across Ceres, which provide insights into the composition and physical properties of the surface of Ceres. Spot 1 is colder than its surroundings, Spot 5 is not.
Mechanisms like internal heating, movement of water or ice might involve.
Researchers at the 2015 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union in Vienna, said colored surface of the planet suggest that this was once an active planet.
Ceres was an active planet and not an inert rock in its history as there are many different material found in different regions, said Chris Russell, lead author principal investigator for the Dawn mission, at the University of California, Los Angeles.
