    NASA today released new images captured by the Dawn spacecraft, which is approaching the dwarf planet Ceres. Dawn will be the first mission to successfully visit a dwarf planet when it enters orbit around Ceres on Friday, March 6.

    It should only be a matter of minutes now before Richard C. Hoagland starts posting photographic "evidence" of old discarded toaster ovens on the mini-planet's surface.

    Looks like the dawn probe is emerging from the dark side over the north pole of Ceres.

    Crazy that the images for the animation were taken from 21,000 miles away. More, even sharper images to follow...

    Still won't be able to find Howard's sense of humor, though.
