SS: as nasa dawn approaches the moon ceres (its a dwarf planet i call them moons) two bright spots appeared that i have not talked about… i did not want to speculate about it and instead wait for more data to come in…the first thing that comes to my mind: is that a more recent crater then the rest ?? … it looks like it might be ..and that could be something a recent impact exposed . i am for sure watching to see what this is because we are about to learn something new here…so lucky we are!

Destination Dwarf Planet: The Dawn Mission Nears Ceres Published on Mar 2, 2015 On March 6, the Dawn spacecraft will slip into orbit around Ceres, a dwarf planet located in the main asteroid belt. This mission marks the first time a dwarf planet has been visited by a spacecraft and scientists are eager to see its surface in detail. Ceres gets its name from the ancient Roman goddess of agriculture and grain crops.
