NASA Finds 3 Mile High Pyramid on Ceres

Strange features on Ceres just keep popping up as we get better imaging of the dwarf planet Ceres from NASA.

As Dawn first made its approach on Ceres earlier this year, it caught sight of large, bright and mysterious reflective spots in a crater on the big rock, which is also believed to contain quite a bit of water, ice or mud in its interior.

Now orbiting at a near altitude of just 2,700 miles, those big spots remain a mystery, but Dawn is also beginning to pick out other bright spots and an odd pyramid-shaped peak that NASA estimates to be three miles tall, which would put it higher than any of the Rocky Mountains.

The image with the peak was taken on June 6 and released Wednesday.
