These awesome planet animations are a glimpse of what things look like in space.
Some of the images are actual telescope footage. I had to minifi many of the gifs to make them faster.
Ceres is a dwarf planet that lies in the field of the asteroid belt. Its the largest asteroid that became round due to its mass. However it is still very small, much smaller than the moon.
Its the largest planet in the solar system. The rotating bands are gas and the large moving dot is the famous storm that has lasted more than 300 years.
