The brightest asteroid 1 Ceres (also classified as a dwarf planet), is approaching opposition from the Sun on 2015 JUL 24. On that date it will appear at its brightest for its current apparition at magnitude +7.5.

I have created finder charts and ephemerides for Ceres and other bright asteroids near their oppositions. They can be found at www.CurtRenz.com/asteroids.html

Photos and descriptions of Ceres and other asteroids would be welcome additions to this thread.
