Scientists are clueless as to what they are. The image pixels are saturated, meaning they are lit at the maximum brightness the camera can cope with at that exposure and gain.

Presently volcanism is a lead candidate. The other alternative is reflected sunlight. But note how the Sun is illuminating the dwarf planet from the side. What kind of ice reflects light so brilliantly in all directions? Or just happens to reflect the light at the Dawn probe?

No, these are electric discharges. If UV or x-ray data were available the high-energy nature of these spots would be apparent.

The universe is electric, but mainstreams scientists haven’t a clue. More at http://thunderbolts.info
