  • We observed Ceres at three epochs in 2015 November and 2017 September and October with ALMA 12-meter array and in 2017 October with the ALMA Compact Array (ACA), all at ~265 GHz continuum (wavelengths of ~1.1 mm) to map the temperatures of Ceres over a full rotation at each epoch. We also used 2017 October ACA observations to search for HCN. The disk-averaged brightness temperature of Ceres is measured to be between 170 K and 180 K during our 2017 observations. The rotational lightcurve of… CONTINUE READING
