I was going through the more recent images taken of Ceres and noticed that as the "bright" spot comes out of the darkness. It has a shadow. Which means this object is elevated to some degree. Then as the angle of the sun becomes more directed at it, a smaller bright spot intensifies in the forefront of the original bright spot.
See image above.
Could we be seeing a shadow behind a dome and a reflection in front created by the sun shining off it?
Pardon my very rough, very quickly created, sketch..
