Artistic concept of the surface of Ceres - the dwarf planet orbiting in the asteroids belt - and some props just for fun.
It would be a loop animation, except for some Internet Explorer :noes: if so, right click > active loop and play.
Made with 3D Studio Max and After Effects. No stocks. I drew every single pixel of the scene.

Better but static view here --> streincorp.deviantart.com/art/…

Ricostruzione artistica della superficie del pianeta minore Cerere, orbitante nella fascia di asteroidi tra Marte e Giove.
Solo l'Internet Explorer lento a caricarlo e non sempre attivato il loop T_T: basta cliccare col destro e attivare loop (o ciclo) e play (o ripeti) oppure usare qualsiasi altro browser decente

This is gorgeous! Very good job with creating this animation. I have liked Ceres since many many years ago learned about its existence and also its former status as a planet. I gues it was also one reason why I was not so surprised about what happened to Pluto in 2006. I think I could point out that Ceres has orbital period of 4.6 not 4.9 years. Anyway this is very very good.

Grazie. Ogni riferimento a pianeti o volti puramente casuale :D

Can hardly wait until Dawn arrives!

Some believe Ceres has a sizable subsurface liquid ocean. If humanity eventually has a presence in the main belt, I would expect Ceres to be a hub.

With it's high angular velocity and shallow gravity well, Clarke towers from Ceres are very doable.
