Evidently Arthur C. Clarke was wrong and the monoliths are white. That or a careless UFO driver has been caught out in the open. The full article is at: http://phys.org/news/2015-02-bright-ceres-dimmer-companion.html My money would be on it being a frost deposit of some sort. The probe is still closing in so we can expect better pictures to follow. What is clear is that these minor planets are potentially more geologically interesting than was first thought. -- Regards, Martin Brown

Or maybe ice of some sort. The sun angle looks low; the bright spots are practically inside the crater shadow. Should be interesting. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc picosecond timing laser drivers and controllers jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com
