Alien Lights? Probably just ice.
“Dawn scientists can now conclude that the intense brightness of these spots is due to the reflection of sunlight by highly reflective material on the surface, possibly ice,” Christopher Russell, NASA’s Dawn Mission Principal Investigator
What makes these latest photographs even more incredible is Dawn will be getting much, much closer to Ceres before it’s mission comes to an end.
These photographs were taken from thousands of miles above the surface and Dawn will be orbiting as close as 250 miles above the surface before it is done.
All of this is going down 310 million miles from Earth. Amazing.
