Postcards from Ceres

Ceres may just be one of the most underappreciated places in the entire solar system. For a long time it was only considered an asteroid, not even worthy of being mentioned in school textbooks. Which may be why I love that NASA’s Dawn mission has given us such beautiful views of our nearest dwarf planet.

Here are a few gorgeous shots of the tiny place. Some details on what each image contains are included in the captions. Click any one to view them in an image carousel.
