• Italian scientists analyzing recent photos transmitted by NASA’s Dawn Probe of the largest asteroid, Ceres, have observed images of water ice in a dozen sites and seasonal changes on the frozen surface of the dwarf planet.
• Andrea Raponi of the Institute of Astrophysics and Planetary Science in Rome said, “The combination of Ceres moving closer to the sun in its orbit, along with seasonal change, triggers the release of water vapor from the subsurface, which then condenses on the cold crater wall.
• Ceres is also famed for its ‘alien mystery lights’ (pictured above) which appear to shine from its surface.
• [Editor’s Note] This corroborates Tony Rodrigues’ account of his time spent on the asteroid Ceres and the highly populated subsurface Dark Fleet colony there. See video below of Tony describing the water geysers that periodically shoot up from the surface. Also, note the ‘mystery lights’ that have been detected on Ceres could confirm an advanced civilization inhabiting the dwarf planet.
Nasa’s Dawn Probe has snapped images of water ice in a dozen sites on Ceres, which is the largest object in the Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Italian scientists then analysed the photos and were able to observe alterations in the frozen surface of the dwarf planet. ‘This is the first direct detection of change on the surface of Ceres,’ said Andrea Raponi of the Institute of Astrophysics and Planetary Science in Rome. ‘The combination of Ceres moving closer to the sun in its orbit, along with seasonal change, triggers the release of water vapour from the subsurface, which then condenses on the cold crater wall.
‘This causes an increase in the amount of exposed ice. The warming might also cause landslides on the crater walls that expose fresh ice patches.’ Although this discovery does not necessarily mean aliens are present on the far-flung mini-world, it could mean extraterrestrial organisms could survive there because water is essential to life here on our planet.
Last year, Nasa spotted organic molecules which ‘are necessary, though not sufficient, components of life on Earth’ on Ceres. The dwarf planet is also famed for its ‘alien mystery lights’ which appear to shine from its surface. These are likely to be caused by light reflecting from ice.
