NEWS: NASA Releases Salty New Video of Dwarf Planet Ceres: WATCH

Ceres

NASA this week released a very cool video of our solar system’s dwarf planet Ceres, a composite of images taken by the Dawn spacecraft. Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt. The clip includes a flyover view of Occator Crater, home of Ceres’ brightest area.

False color was used to determine differences in surface materials, and examine bright spots on the object. The bright material, NASA says, is consistent with salt, silicate, and sulfates.
