Or, even more novel, a form of cryovolcanism. Now wouldnt that be neat.

Cryovolcanism isn't new, we've seen it on Enceladus and probably on Europa and Titan, too.

This is pretty fucking neat
Whatever it may be, it looks interesting to the layman like myself

I guess we'll have a better idea on friday (?)

It's in orbit!
I would be lying, if i said i wasn't excited most about the bright spots.
Seems like it's a bit of a wait still, until we get clearer images, though.
It's pretty fucking cool nevertheless

"The most recent images received from the spacecraft, taken on March 1 show
Ceres as a crescent, mostly in shadow because the spacecraft's trajectory put it on a side of Ceres that faces away from the sun until mid-April. When Dawn emerges from Ceres' dark side, it will deliver ever-sharper images as it spirals to lower orbits around the planet."

I think you're defining the word "novel" too strictly. I'd consider any form of cryovolcanism to be novel because the evidence itself is relatively new and much of it is based on indirect observation.
