What is the astrological symbol for Ceres?

The symbol for the asteroid Ceres is a stylized sickle; a crescent of receptivity resting on a cross of matter. The sickle is a crescent shaped sharp tool on a short handle which was used for cutting grass and crops. Sickle cells are associated with red blood. A stylized pattern of five stalks grain was also submitted as a symbolic representation for Ceres.

Are there any forms of boxing which won't get you a 'flat nose' etc?

Shadow boxing

Chronologically, damage accumulates faster if you tend have a mindlessly aggressive style and fall into the evergiving instinct to rush forward and tear off a guy's head, because you'll be much more susceptible to the jab or counter cross coming straight forward.

If looks are what you're worried about, always box behind the jab, don't be hesitant to continue with the jab even if you get tagged, and learn to throw two, three and four five jabs at a time. Keep hands high at all times, don't rush in and always be using the ring to make the guy come and look for you.

How many dwarf planets are there?

There are currently 5 recognised Dwarf Planets.

  • Ceres - is between Mars and Jupiter in the asteroid belt.
  • Pluto
  • Eris
  • Makemake
  • Haumea

For a list of dwarf planet candidates, see related link.

There are currently five known "dwarf planets", but it is certain that there are many more in the Kuiper Belt that have not yet been identified.

Any body in the Kuiper Belt with enough mass to attain "hydrostatic equilibrium" - meaning that it has enough mass that its gravity crushes it into a sphere - will be another "dwarf planet". There may be dozens or hundreds of them, but they are so small and far away that we haven't noticed them yet.

Wait about 6 more years, until the James Webb Space Telescope is launched. It ought to be able to pick out a few.

NASA's "New Horizons" spacecraft will reach the Kuiper Belt during July 2015 to study Pluto and its moons up close for the first time, and also other objects in the belt.

What is the temperature of Ceres?

The temperature on Ceres has been calculates as 167 K (-106.15 Celsius) at the average distance from the sun (Semi-major axis) and 239 K (-34.15 Celsius) at the closest distance from the sun (Perihelion).

Unofficially,

Distance ... ... Irradiance (W/m^2) ... ... % of Earth's... ... Temperature

Minimum: .............210.91 ........................ 15.41% ................239 K

Average: ............. 178.51.........................13.06% ................137 K

Maximum: ............. 153.23.........................12.217%.................??

I would then give a rough linear extrapolation for the minimum as 61 K (-212 °C) base on difference between ratios.

((((695500000)^2)*(0.0000000567051)*((5778)^4))/((446669320000)^2)) equals 153.23

How far is Ceres from the sun?

Ceres has a moderately eccentric orbit, which means its distance from the Sun will vary.

  • Aphelion (Furthest) 446,669,320 kilometers (277,547,448 miles) 2.9858 AU
  • Perihelion (Closest) 380,995,855 kilometers (236,739,849 miles) 2.5468 AU
  • Semi major axis (Mean) 413,832,587 kilometers (257,143,648 miles) 2.7663 AU

Giuseppe Piazzi the person who discovered Ceres?

Piazzi discovered Ceres, today known as the largest member of the asteroid belt. On January 1, 1801, Piazzi discovered a "stellar object" that moved against the background of stars. At first he thought it was a fixed star, but once he noticed that it moved, he became convinced it was a planet, or as he called it, "a new star".

In his journal, he wrote: "The light was a little faint, and of the colour of Jupiter, but similar to many others which generally are reckoned of the eighth magnitude. Therefore I had no doubt of its being any other than a fixed star. In the evening of the second I repeated my observations, and having found that it did not correspond either in time or in distance from the zenith with the former observation, I began to entertain some doubts of its accuracy. I conceived afterwards a great suspicion that it might be a new star. The evening of the third, my suspicion was converted into certainty, being assured it was not a fixed star. Nevertheless before I made it known, I waited till the evening of the fourth, when I had the satisfaction to see it had moved at the same rate as on the preceding days."

In spite of his assumption that it was a planet, he took the conservative route and announced it as a comet. In a letter to astronomer Barnaba Oriani of Milan he made his suspicions known in writing:"I have announced this star as a comet, but since it is not accompanied by any nebulosity and, further, since its movement is so slow and rather uniform, it has occurred to me several times that it might be something better than a comet. But I have been careful not to advance this supposition to the public."

He was not able to observe it long enough as it was soon lost in the glare of the Sun. Unable to compute its orbit with existing methods, the renowned mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss developed a new method of orbit calculation that allowed astronomers to locate it again. After its orbit was better determined, it was clear that Piazzi's assumption was correct and this object was not a comet but more like a small planet. Coincidentally, it was also almost exactly where the predicted a planet would be.

Piazzi named it "Ceres Ferdinandea," after the Roman and Sicilian goddess of grain and King Ferdinand IV of Naples and Sicily. The Ferdinandea part was later dropped for political reasons. Ceres turned out to be the first, and largest, of the asteroids existing within the Asteroid Belt. Ceres is today called a dwarf planet.

Ceres does not have any moons or natural satellites.

As far as we know at present, Ceres does not have any moons. Ceres, the smallest dwarf planet, has no known moons. However there are other dwarf planets with moons that we know of such as Pluto and its moon Charon.

How heavy would a cinder block be on Ceres?

Cinder blocks come in different sizes and weights, so in order to answer this question let's assume that the cinder block is a "light weight" version, which weighs about 28lbs here on Earth. Ceres, which is a dwarf planet (or "planetoid"), has a surface gravity of 0.27 m/s^2. Thus, a cinder block would weigh 0.7706lbs on Ceres.
