Across the Universe: Spotting Ceres — 1 Comment

  1. A faithful reader writes: “I stumble and fumble about a lot of sky-definition… I thought a meteorite was one of those sky-things that actually had landed on Earth. But reading today’s post on the tags to attach to Ceres, there’s a suggestion ‘…Black meteorite…’ Did I have a wrong or incomplete understanding of Meteorite?”

    No… it was an ambiguity on my part. At the end I wanted to mention the thought that the surface material of Ceres might be the same material as is found in black meteorites. The Tablet has a pretty strict word limit and sometimes, squeezing out the last few words, I would also squeeze out any clarity that those words might have added. Sorry!
