Ceres is probably a Star Wars 'death star"?

What a coincidence I was just listening to a discussion about this on one of my favorite podcasts (Skeptics Guide to the Universe grin ). It was an earlier in the year episode when the bright spots were first noticed and presented themselves as just a bright light. One of the theories is that it is reflections from exposed crystalline material below the surface. Or a death ray or star! laugh

My prediction: It will be reported on some UFO blogs that aliens have mined the surface to get to the material. I'd bet on the material of interest to the aliens is either clear frozen water, diamonds or special energy producing crystals unlike anything on earth. shocked

NASA doing the public bad again.

NASA will not show close up shots of bright spots, but will show everything else.

I'm sure they'll get to it. Perhaps they do not feel it important enough to push it to number one priority in the work plan I'm sure they developed some time ago and want to follow. The spots are not going anywhere and they could also be waiting on a better orbit or distance.

Besides, if they released a closeup and it does not show anything to determine what it is they will be accused of hiding the truth. If it does show something others outside of the scientific community i.e., UFO sites, think looks strange it will lead to wild speculation even if there's reasonable explanations. Why would NASA want to be wasting their time? I'd say NASA is giving the believers precisely what they want and deserve. grin

NASA Gets Best View Yet of Mysterious Bright Spots on Ceres

by Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer
June 11, 2015

NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image of the brightest spots on dwarf planet Ceres on June 6, 2015, from an altitude of 2,700 miles (4,400 kilometers). Image released June 10, 2015. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA

NASA's Dawn spacecraft has snapped the best-ever images of the dwarf planet Ceres' bright spots, but the strange features still have researchers scratching their heads.

The new photos resolve the' bright spots on Ceres into numerous points of varying sizes. The brightest ones lie within a crater about 55 miles (90 kilometers) wide, researchers said. You can see a video tour of Ceres' strange white spots on Space.com that shows how the odd features have come into focus for Dawn over the last two months.

"The bright spots in this configuration make Ceres unique from anything we've seen before in the solar system. The science team is working to understand their source," Dawn principal investigator Chris Russell of UCLA said in a statement. "Reflection from ice is the leading candidate in my mind, but the team continues to consider alternate possibilities, such as salt."

Dawn captured the images this month from its second mapping orbit of Ceres, an orbit that lies about 2,700 miles (4,400 km) above the surface of the heavily cratered world. But the probe will soon get even closer to the dwarf planet ó close enough, perhaps, to take the bright spots' measure at last.

On June 28, Dawn will begin spiraling down to an orbit with an altitude of 900 miles (1,450 km), finally getting there in early August. (It takes Dawn a while to get around because the probe is powered by superefficient but low-thrust ion engines.)

"With closer views from the new orbit and multiple view angles, we soon will be better able to determine the nature of this enigmatic phenomenon," Russell said in the same statement.

The $473 million Dawn mission launched in September 2007 to study Ceres and Vesta, the two largest objects in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Ceres is about 590 miles (950 km) wide, while Vesta's diameter is 330 miles (530 km).

Thanks for the update Swampy. smiley

I'm curious if they have yet taken or analyzed the spectra to determine composition ,,,,,,,,,

Ditto Swampy,
I would be more interested in the infrared, the thing is
equipped with that ? or is it we never see those
infrared images, just models of false colors,
or the spectra, of chems.

I have requested infrared images, from our scientific leaders, twice,
The reply was from a lower level,
"we are not in control of releasing principle data"

Has anyone ever tried to get infrared images from our science leaders,
if so please share your results.

I believe these are highly reflective alien structures, just my opinion.

Why did they
ADD
the star field ?
What if they added the wrong ones, does anyone else,
feel this is more than a 2X exaggeration ?

NASA says Ceres so mysterious that NASA want public's opinion.

"There be aliens" !

You know these are high tech alien structures.

As soon as the
NASA/JPL
people release the infrared images I will give
my opinion, cos they have them.

Why are the white spots on Ceres brightly light up on its dark side?

This is too strange.
