Top kosmofoto week: Jupiter's lightning, and more

Planet, planets everywhere! The only question is, where do we go this week. First, visit the small dwarf planet, which is quite close to the Earth. NASA Dawn space probe intended Ceres since 2015, watching its bright icy mountains and strange impact craters. Moving on, we will visit Jupiter, where "Juno" remarked very interesting lightning. In 1979, they also watched "Voyager". It turns out that most of the lightning Jupiter really like our native terrestrial lightning, but that's the Jupiter of their activity is concentrated at the poles.

Finally, another object - one of Saturn's 53 moons, Tethys. This rocky ball studded with scars from objects that are faced with the surface for thousands of years. These surface features not only look cool, but also may help scientists to understand the history of the moon, as it was in the early days of the solar system.
