When you think of the word planet, what usually comes to mind?
Many around the world have heard of the typical 8 planets. The typical ones include Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus. The remaining one, Pluto, is also known as the only Dwarf planet…until now.
Ceres is a planet that has been recognized for being an unusual asteroid in the asteroid belt discovered by Giuseppe Piazzi. NASA, which stands for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, stated, “[The] dwarf planet Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and the only dwarf planet located in the inner solar system.” Ceres is more like Venus, Earth and Mars as the more terrestrial type of planets.
