Will Ceres, the dwarf planet or massive asteroid, be as science predicts – an icy object with some internal rocky material and core with perhaps with an internal liquid ocean – a dwarf planet made from some left over material from the formation of the solar system?
Or will it be found as the Electric Universe Theory predicts – a mainly rocky object similar to other asteroids and dwarf planets with similar geology features found on virtually all of the rocky bodies in our solar system no matter what material they are composed of, where they are or if they have no water to erode them.
Ceres appears to be a sphere shape and not the peanut or duck shape of asteroids – so does this indicate that its origin is similar to planets and moons and not asteroids/comets (active asteroids)?
So it should be more like the moons and planets.
Astronomy predictions of Ceres
Ceres appears to be differentiated into a rocky core and icy mantle, and may harbor an internal ocean of liquid water under its surface. The surface is probably a mixture of water ice and various hydrated minerals such as carbonates and clay. In January 2014, emissions of water vapor were detected from several regions of Ceres. This was somewhat unexpected, as large bodies in the asteroid belt do not typically emit vapor, a hallmark of comets.
By observing the asteroid during a full rotation, astronomers confirmed that Ceres has a nearly round body like Earth’s. Ceres’ shape suggests that its interior is layered like those of terrestrial planets such as Earth. Ceres may have a rocky inner core, an icy mantle, and a thin, dusty outer crust inferred from its density and rotation rate.
The bright spot that appears in each image is a mystery. It is brighter than its surroundings. Yet it is still very dark, reflecting only a small portion of the sunlight that shines on it.

Already the Dwarf planet or asteroid Ceres is causing confusion with its water vapour. And science is showing its inflexibility. Water vapour being emitted is not the hallmark of just comets. Comet 67p and other active asteroids emit water vapour and so does the moon.
Ceres has a very primitive surface and like a young planet, contains water-bearing minerals, and possibly a very weak atmosphere and frost. Infrared observations show that the surface is warm with a possible maximum temperature of 235 K (-38°C).
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope observed that Ceres’ surface has a large dark spot as well as a bright spot which are presumed to be crates. A second explanation for the dark spot it that it may be a darker substance in the asteroid’s soil.
Dwarf Planet Ceres
Ceres should be found to have similar geology features to other asteroids, dwarf planets, moons and larger rocky planets.
Ceres surface should be found to be made nearly completely of rocky material, with craters (plasma discharge not impact), rilles, cliffs, boulders etc.
The water vapour found coming from Ceres will not be from ice on the surface or just below the surface but will be of a similar process to that found on other asteroids and active asteroids (comets), also our Moon. Splattering and those EDM jets,.
Electric Universe Theory prediction of Ceres
Thunderbolts suggest this:
We predict that when Dawn attains orbit around Ceres and begins its close range observations, there will be similar structures. Large clean craters, rilles, a lack of explosive debris, flat-floored canyons, and sharp ridges. Ceres will most likely look like its cousins, Tethys and Dione.
