A top online UFO researcher says that an alien “tower” on the asteroid Ceres has emerged from close analysis of a NASA photo of the mysterious “bright spots” on the surface of the celestial body classified by the space agency as a “dwarf planet.” NASA has remained both fascinated and mystified by the bright spots that were first noticed in photos from the Dawn space probe inside an area that scientists have dubbed the Occator Crater.

NASA scientists have yet to come up with a good explanation for the strange, bright white spots on the surface of Ceres, but as the Dawn spacecraft draws nearer and nearer to the dwarf planet, they expect that some answers may come into focus.
In late July, Dawn had lowered itself to an orbit of about 2,400 miles above the surface of Ceres, which is believed to be the largest of the thousands of asteroids in the solar system’s asteroid belt that orbits the sun between the planets Mars and Jupiter.
But using his own photographic software, UFO Sightings Daily editor Scott C. Waring — the man responsible for either making or publicizing dozens of similar “discoveries” in NASA inages such as the “moon-size” alien ships seen orbiting the sun, and “alien cities” supposedly found on the surface of the moon — enhanced the Sawn spacecraft photos and now says that he has seen that they reveal some kind of an “tower” in the Occator Crater.
Presumably, the structure, if indeed it exists, would be of alien origin.
“Looking back at Ceres I still wonder about the glowing structures. There were a few new photos and I decided to try my best to get something out of it. I used and abuse my photo program until this object came out. Now I didn’t do anything except add darkness and sharpening,” Waring wrote on the UFO Sighting Daily blog.
“These objects we see are the glowing alien structures in crater. Most of them are something out of a futuristic novel with chaotic directions and shape, but one has angles, height, roundness…all the qualities we recognize on Earth as a tower.”
Here is a composite photo of the crater, complete with the bizarre bright spots, as assembled by NASA.
Now, here is what Waring saw when he enhanced the photo with “darkness and sharpening.”
The tower itself may not be quite clear from that original, enhanced image. But the below enhancement is what Waring saw when he continued to zoom in on the enhanced NASA photo.
Next, he zoomed in on the bright spot that he believes conceals the alien tower even further.
And finally, Waring added more heightened contrast, in an attempt to bring out the features of the alleged structure on the surface of Ceres.
NASA scientists say that at one time, Ceres was a full-fledged planet in our solar system, and in addition to the intriguing bright spots, the celestial body contains a number of other remarkable features, including what NASA has described as a “pyramid,” actually a giant mountain on the surface of Ceres.
“As we slowly approach the stage, our eyes transfixed on Ceres and her planetary dance, we find she has beguiled us but left us none the wiser,” said Dawn mission investigator Chris Russell, who is based at the University of California at Los Angeles. “We expected to be surprised; we did not expect to be this puzzled.”
Given the mysteries of Ceres that seem to baffle even the finest minds NASA has to offer, could the “discovery” made by one, individual UFO researcher be dismissed out of hand?
