Nasa scientists in California revealed images from the Dawn spacecraft
One shows a mountain the size of Mont Blanc in a relatively flat area
The formation and origin of the mountain remains a mystery
And images of the bizarre bright spots on the surface were also shown
The latest images of Ceres taken by the Dawn spacecraft have captured a fascinating pyramid-shaped mountain on the surface.

As the spacecraft gets closer, more and more features are beginning to reveal themselves.

This includes the mysterious bright spots, which appear now as an array of dots scattered across the floor of a crater – but their source remains unknown.
