The mysterious bright spots on Ceres may have a common origin

https://www.newscientist.com/article/21 ... on-origin/

Quote:
While the biggest and brightest spots are in Occator crater, more exist elsewhere on the dwarf planet. “Almost all of them are associated with impact craters,” says Stein. The team found 90 per cent of the bright spots are in craters or are debris ejected from a crater.

Dawn Spacecraft Reveals Recent Changes in Ceres' Surface

http://www.astrowatch.net/2018/03/dawn- ... anges.html

Quote:
Observations obtained by the visible and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIR) on the Dawn spacecraft previously found water ice in a dozen sites on Ceres. The new study revealed the abundance of ice on the northern wall of Juling Crater, a crater 12 miles (20 kilometers) in diameter. The new observations, conducted from April through October 2016, show an increase in the amount of ice on the crater wall.
