Me too! May whatever's found be worth the wait! Maneuvering around an object like Ceres, with its low mass and gravity, and using only a very low impulse ion engine is bound to be a drawn out process.

...and still nothing... Is this gapped inorder to develop a plausible scientific explanation based on current known data or have they seen something else requiring an explanation more likely to be quelled because of its impact on humanity? Either way still waiting.

There weren't any plans to take images of Ceres, after March 1st and before April 9th.
Dawn is approaching Ceres from the unlit side. The Sun is near Ceres from Dawn's point of view. If they tried to take images now, they could damage the camera with excessive sunlight. In any case, Dawn swung wide of Ceres on its way to a closer, more nearly circular orbit. It wouldn't be possible to take images any better than the ones we already have.

The images taken on April 10th will probably be available to the public about mid-April. They should show greater detail than any seen before.
