NASA’s Dawn spacecraft has done it again by sending the latest best images.
The latest photo sent by dwarf is in a series of the best bright spot photos yet, as the spacecraft is moving closer to the dwarf planet Ceres.
Ceres is the largest body in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Dwarf is getting into closer orbits of Ceres to take high resolution images.
The new image shows the bright spots which is seen in one of the Ceres many craters. Earlier images sent by Dawn have also shown the bright spots.
Scientist haven’t yet pinpointed what those bright spots are or the cause of the bright spots, but NASA want to know what you think they might be.
NASA has opened a voting pool, where it is asking members of public to decide what they think those bright spots are, and what is causing the reflectivity. They have given choices that include ice, volcano, salt deposit, geyser and other.
The other option is winning the poll at the moment.
Some scientists believe that those bright spots are made up of ice. Researchers know that the bright spots are caused by some highly reflective material on the surface of dwarf planet and it could be frozen water.
The image of the bright spots was taken on May 16, as Dawn flew about 4,500 miles or 7,200 kilometers from the surface of the planet.
Dawn is going to stay in the orbit until June 30, when it will go in for a closer look at the planet from lower orbits.
Dawn is the first spacecraft to orbit the dwarf planet Ceres. It started orbiting the planet in March 2015.
Before exploring Ceres it has also orbited Vesta, the second largest body in the belt after Ceres.
