NASA releases first color map of Ceres

“This dwarf planet was not just an inert rock throughout its history. It was active, with processes that resulted in different materials in different regions. We are beginning to capture that diversity in our color images,” said Chris Russell, principal investigator for the Dawn mission, based at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Pretty cool. I’m dying to know what the bright spots on the planet surface turn out to be.
