WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Dawn spacecraft has returned the sharpest images ever seen of the dwarf planet Ceres.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft is nearing Ceres, and new images show a puzzling white spot on its surface.
Vesta, the propoplanet visited by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft from 2011 through 2013, may have once been home to short-lived flows of water-mobilized material – a discovery which could have tremendous implications for the field of planetary science, according to the US space agency.
New images of Ceres captured by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft during its approach to the dwarf planet are the best yet obtained by the spacecraft, and appear to show evidence of craters as well as a mysterious white spot first discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2003.

Johann Daniel Titius was born on January 2, 1729 in Konitz, Royal Prussia. He was a professor at Wittenberg. He is most famous for the Titius-Bode law, which helped him find the existence of a minor planet at 2.8 AU from the sun in 1766. The planet was later named Ceres. Titius died in Wittenberg on December 11, 1796. To his honor, the Titius asteroid in 1998 and the Titius lunar crater are named after him.
