Danielle's experiment seams quite close to this: splash!


Yes climber :-)


I'm enthusiastic for new images, in particular for the Mouns..

According to the Twitter account, the mountain is about 5 km tall.

I enjoy this...
i have supposed that this mount more 4000 mt Tall at the first image of May :-)
(in recently image i have supposeD 6'500mt tall, but I probably wrong)
it's possible compare at some italian volcanoes (5000 mt tall supposed):

Personally i find that 70+-km long "cliff" in the center of that image just as, if not more interesting. How do you get that?

It's not a crater rim (unless we got some really serious erosion otherwise there), it's not some sort of "cave-in" depression below. What it looks like at best to me is tectonic activity folding it up, but uh... we don't get tectonics on Ceres, do we?

Actually it is a crater rim, part of the biggest impact basin we have been seeing in several recent hemisphere-scale images, like this one:

(note that image is flipped left-right, the new one is not)

Indeed it's good to look at the context to see the entire basin that raised rim is a part of. Here is an updated map, now with a second image from the survey orbit that shows a closeup of this raised rim and nearby conical mountain. In honor of this closer orbit the resolution of the map is now increased to 8K.

Indeed this image fits in nicely to help map out the basins, including features such as the fossae bundle. Thus here is a quick updated map.

The fossae bundle again:

The square arrangement of features is interesting.

fantastic this Fossae. .
I Hope in a great resolution

Hi there, is a bit of time that I cannot come back here (it's not a good time) but I'm continuing to read.
So, Daniele the color of these images can not be obviously real (they are black and white).
Original files are on our Flickr album: https://flic.kr/p/tPP6Cq - https://flic.kr/p/tG8GKv
In the description you will find a "vc" which stands for "virtual color" (we'll try to be more explicit but generally we are always in a hurry!).
They were obtained with the same technique that we used many times for the Rosetta's comet.
Although the colors may match with a good approximation to reality, the main purpose of making a black and white image in color is to emphasize the details. On the other hand, we find that our eye perceives really better in color.

There is a (somewhat false-) global colour map of Ceres, taken at near-infrared, green, and blue wavelengths:

Perhaps you could use that colour information in your images? I'd imagine that the surface's appearance at near-infrared would be similar to what it looks like at red wavlengths.

~~~

Regarding the "mountain", did NASA or any other scientific organisation post an estimate of what it could be?

yes viking, But Monte Bianco is set in the Alps complex, while volcanoes leave from the sea floor, they make more idea :-)
