Ceres is the largest object in the Asteroid Belt, which lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. It is the only dwarf planet in the inner Solar System and was first discovered (in modern times) by Giuseppe Piazzi in 1801. However, the ancient Sumerians knew this planet by another name. To the ancient astronomer priests of Sumer, Ceres was known as Tiamat (“The God of Fresh Water”). Tiamat was a massive watery planet that was destroyed in a collision with another, more massive, planet known to the ancients as Nibiru (“The Planet of the Crossing”).
In the year 2015, it was confirmed that there is liquid water on the surface and a sustainable, earth-like atmosphere. In 2016 the Dawn spacecraft recorded the first signs of life beyond our planet. Massive sea creatures resembling dragons and serpents were identified and recorded in great detail. News of life on Ceres caused a massive uproar throughout the scientific and religious communities. The answer to one of life’s greatest mysteries was finally solved. We are indeed not alone in the universe.
