It seems that the mysterious dwarf planet Ceres has gotten a lot more mysterious as new images show more anomalies on the dwarf Planet Ceres.
Ceres, one of the most enigmatic (dwarf) planets of our solar system has given researchers quite a few surprises. Everything started with the strange bright spots the Dawn Spacecraft photographed on the surface of the dwarf planet, strange bright spots that so far have woken the imagination of readers and media around the world.
The enigmatic bright lights were even used by Ufologists as they compared cities on Earth as seen from space to the mysterious bright lights seen on the surface of Ceres.
If you compare the image of the bright lights on Ceres to an image of a city on Earth, taken from Space, I’d say that the two look very much alike… It’s as if we are looking at an Alien city on Ceres… But optical illusion can play around with your mind. While no one can rule out at this point an alien city on Ceres, no one can rule out Pareidolia either.
Shortly after the discovery of the bright lights, another discovery was made on Ceres, a huge Pyramidal ‘structure’ was found in a vast region on Ceres where there aren’t any mountains. Now, by combining images taken between August and October this year by the Dawn spacecraft, NASA has created the first high-resolution map of the polar regions, revealing a surface pockmarked with a large number of craters, a mountain 20 km diameter and a large dark area that has caused confusion among researchers.
According to an article published on NASA’s website, “the South Pole of Ceres is almost in total darkness because “has been in the shadow since Dawn began orbiting the dwarf planet in March.” However, “two craters in the region, called Atlas and Zaddeni can be Cleary distinguished in the images.” The ‘overshadowed pole of the dwarf planet will surely cause the formulation of a number of theories trying to explain just what the dwarf planet is hiding in one of its Pole’s… Could it be an entrance to an underground Alien world? Well, on Ceres it seems that anything is possible.
Strange the exact opposite occurs on the North Pole of Ceres. This region is very well illuminated and several very important craters surround a huge mountain called Ysolo Mons. The images used to create the polar portraits published in this article (which can be found in higher resolution by clicking here) were taken between August 17 and October 23 when the Dawn spacecraft was orbiting the dwarf planet at just 1,470 km from the surface. Mapping the poles of Ceres will help NASA understand the formation of craters and serve as a comparative framework for other regions of dwarf the dwarf planet.
As you can see Ceres has certainly won the title as one of the most enigmatic and mysterious objects within our solar system.
