Ceres – That’s a little better

NASA Probe Sees North Pole of Dwarf Planet Ceres (Video)

Aloha – That’s a little better.  We have been pretty much in the dark, since the Dawn probe began closing in on Ceres.  Actually, it looks surprisingly like how I describe Demeter in the Demeter series.  This is the first reasonable close up we’ve gotten, at 21,000 miles.

In the coming months better and better detail will be available as the Dawn probe begins its 14 month mission to Ceres, closing in to about 7,000 miles above the surface.
