What am I watching?

ceres

Look at this marvelous animated gif of the dwarf planet, Ceres, taken by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft.

Thanks to Lights in the Dark for this post.

This is where you can find Ceres.  It is remarkable for a number of reasons, not the least of which is because scientists suspect there is a significant amount of water present on Ceres under a layer of ice.

I hope we will see more photos soon as Dawn gets nearer to Ceres.
