Ceres' Bright Spot Is Composed Of Many Smaller Spots | Closest look yet at Ceres’ bright spots

This could be soft disclosure about the off world colonies and breakaway civilizations discussed by many researchers. David Wilcock and Corey GoodETxSG have been sharing data of late which suggests that this could be one of those settlements.

Mysterious Spot 5 – most prominent of Ceres’ bright spots – is shown to consist of many smaller spots in a new image from the orbiting Dawn spacecraft.

Alright! Now we’re getting somewhere. The Dawn spacecraft – which has now completed its first mapping orbit around the dwarf planet Ceres – acquired these closest-yet images of the mysterious bright spots on Ceres, known as Spot 5, on May 3 and 4, 2015. The distance from Ceres was 8,400 miles (13,600 kilometers). In this view, the brightest spots within a crater in Ceres’ northern hemisphere are revealed to be composed of many smaller spots. As of now, their exact nature remains unknown.
Christopher Russell, principal investigator for the Dawn mission from the University of California, Los Angeles said in a statement from NASA:
Dawn scientists can now conclude that the intense brightness of these spots is due to the reflection of sunlight by highly reflective material on the surface, possibly ice.
There have been suggestions that Spot 5 and the other bright spots on Ceres are icy plumes – or other signs of active ice – on the surface of this little world.
NASA also released a new animation of the bright spots on Ceres, which you can see here.

Dawn has now concluded its first mapping orbit, in which it completed one 15-day full circle around Ceres. During this time, Dawn made many new observations with its scientific instruments.
On May 9, the spacecraft powered on its ion engine to begin the month-long descent toward its second mapping orbit. It’ll enter the new orbit on June 6. In this next phase, Dawn will circle Ceres about every three days at an altitude of 2,700 miles (4,400 kilometers) – three times closer than the previous orbit. During this phase, referred to as Dawn’s survey orbit, the spacecraft will comprehensively map Ceres’ surface.
It’s during this coming phase of the Dawn mission that Ceres’ geologic history is expected to be revealed in more details. Scientists will also assess whether the dwarf planet is active.
The spacecraft will pause twice between now and June 6, to take images of Ceres as it spirals down into its new orbit.
