Asteroids Ceres and Vesta, computer scale artwork. The asteroids (Ceres is the larger one) are seen against the south-eastern USA for scale. Florida is between them. These two asteroids are the largest known members of the asteroid belt, a large group of rocky and icy bodies orbiting in space between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Ceres, with a diameter of 950 kilometres, is classified as a dwarf planet. It accounts for around a third of the mass of the asteroid belt. Vesta, with a diameter of 530 kilometres, accounts for around 9 percent of the mass of the asteroid belt.
