Thread: The mystery of the lights on Ceres

    The lights don't vary in brightness as it rotates in relation to the sun. That basically means they are generating thier own light. There is a larger crater, slightly above where the lights appear, something in that crater gets brighter as the sun hits it and fades. The lights however seem stay at the same intensity.

    Thanks for putting that up Longeyes, ya know, I notice a hexagonal crater comes into view just at the end of the rotation cycle. These are seen on other moons in the solar system too, but here I see only one on Ceres.

    Anyway its at about 11 o'clock on the last frame.

    Hexagonal craters are formed when the crystalline structure of the underlying rock is hexagonal. If you look closely at the structure of the "Devil's Tower" it is composed of interlocking hexagons. There are many other areas of hexagonal bedrock on Earth and by the principle of Uniformitarianism basaltic flow volcanism will cause hexagonal crystalline structures and thus cratering anywhere in such "ground" will show hexagonal patterning as well.

    This picture of the bright spots was taken June 9.

    Looks like the best shot of that glowing stuff to date.

    After clicking on the image I was able to blow it up to 400% (windows 7 feature) very interesting.

    What element can glow or burn like that without oxygen...?

    Magnesium...?

    It is an illusion, the "spots" are pure white and Ceres is very dark giving the appearance of being bright, or glowing. When the final analysis comes out, this will not be nearly so big a mystery.

    This CNN article points out what looks like a pyramid on Ceres, not far from one of the bright spots. Someone on Facebook enlarged the pyramid shape and it shows what looks like holes and grooves which do not look naturally made (IMO).

    Also, scroll down in the article. There is a side by side comparison of the bright spot on Ceres and a night photo of Las Vegas taken from space. The resemblance is freaky.

    Wow!! That is indeed a very freaky resemblance.

    Guys, I do not see a pyramid, a pyramid is made with triangular, flat sides. I see a cone. I suspect this is a form of volcanic cone. There seems to be an element of almost mass hysteria in calling this a pyramid. A pyramid implies construction and possible alien involvement. It looks more natural than something I would be calling a pyramid. As to the comparison with Las Vegas, nothing so far has indicated in the least the bright spots having self illumination or artificiality.
