Your backyard | Pasadena, California | The World!
After more than seven years cruising at stunning speeds [including a wonderful year exploring protoplanet Vesta], Dawn has arrived at its second destination in the main asteroid belt, dwarf planet Ceres. As the Dawn mission begins its exploration, it's time to celebrate.
A flagship i C Ceres event will be held at the California Institute of Technology at the Beckman Mall and Auditorium from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm PDT. You aren't in southern California? Big or small, public or private—your club, society, school group, or museum—host your own event!
