NASA’s Dawn spacecraft with its flown to the dwarf planet Ceres. These are images created that show in detail how the looks dwarf planet. Dawn is already some time in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

It is not the first images shot from Ceres, but Dawn now has a large number of close made. Based on that NASA has a video released which shows in detail the characteristics of the dwarf planet. There are used a total of 80 images, which with 3D software are put together to make a good running of a whole.

Dawn came on 6 March at the dwarf planet and NASA has since helped in studying it. Because little is known scientists hope in the future to learn. It is possible that there can be found under the surface of liquid water. If that is so, then there is a chance that there are forms of life are formed. Ceres is located in an asteroid belt where there are more small bodies and is the largest object there. The location in our solar system is located between Mars and Jupiter, and thus it is seen nearest dwarf planet from Earth.

Another explorer of NASA, called New Horizons, came some time ago at Pluto, a dwarf planet. New Horizons also made pictures, and should teach us more about this distant icy celestial body.
