Bright spots on Ceres

What he heck are they? The better the pictures that the Dawn spaceship sends us the more questions pop up, in the latest picture you can see darker areas that must be ejecta from some kind of impactů
My hope against all hope is that it is some kind of alien space ship, come on these aliens love crashing their spaceships on Earth so why not on other planets?
Well that is my theory, what's yours?

It's a bunch of Swiss school children cooking their sausages over an open fire.

Re: Bright spots on Ceres

..but you must admit it looks like a metallic splat, wonder if it is the wreckage of the lost cosmonauts spaceship.

Doubtfull as there is no fresh crater as you would expect from a meteor impact, the density of Ceres is half that of water so the object(s) must be even less dense.

Been fascinated by these bright splotches for some time now.
I'm sort of hoping that we wake up some extraterrestrial colony which then decides to get rid of the louts that have begun to disturb the peace of the cosmic neighborhood.

Alternate take: we've disturbed the cosmic balance and the whole dust-and-ice ball comes hurtling towards earth, because shite happenz.
