his is an impression of the largest asteroid, Ceres, now also formally designated a dwarf planet.
Nobody has ever seen Ceres up close, but astronomers know that it is spherical (diameter about 1000
km) because of its mass. So I had free reign here to invent anything I wanted. Note that I added the
extra asteroids to the right merely for artistic reasons. Despite what you see in the movies, the
asteroid belt is actually extremely thin. If you lived on an asteroid in the main belt, such as
Ceres, you would likely not see another one in close up in your lifetime.
