A cluster of mysterious bright spots on dwarf planet Ceres has been photographed by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft.
These new High definition images of the still unexplained bright spots in Occator crater on Ceres give scientists a deeper perspective on these very unusual features.
New HD images of the unexplained bright spots at the surface of Ceres reveals better-defined shapes of the brightest, central spot and features on the crater floor:
As shown in the image, the rim of Occator crater is almost vertical in some places, where it rises steeply for 1 mile (nearly 2 kilometers). That is huge and steep.
Soon, the scientific analysis will reveal the geological and chemical nature of this mysterious and mesmerizing extraterrestrial scenery.
But exactly what is causing the spots to be so bright is still perplexing scientists around the world. The bright lights are now more defined, but it’s not yet clear what they actually are.
