Out in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, Ceres is the largest unexplored rock in our solar system. The Dawn mission arrived in Ceres' orbit back in March, but we have yet to see any great close-ups of the asteroid. That's because the spacecraft's trajectory brought it swinging around Ceres' dark side for a little while. It's still out there in the dark, but it's getting closer to the light. That's why the asteroid looks crescent-shaped in the latest and greatest images from Dawn, shown above.
Storms here on Earth might be devastating events that can last for days and bring cities to their knees, but that's nothing compared to Saturn's storms. Massive thunderstorms complete with lightning and high winds can cover an area roughly the same size as our planet and can last for months, circumnavigating the gas giant in the process.
Just a week after NASA scientists announced their certainty of finding alien life within the next 20 years, a team of scientists say they've found no obvious signs of advanced extraterrestrial life after searching 100,000 galaxies.
