English: PLUTO - NEW HORIZONS - July 14, 2015


Four images from New HorizonsLong Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) were combined with color data from the Ralph instrument to create this global view of Pluto. (The lower right edge of Pluto in this view currently lacks high-resolution color coverage.) The images, taken when the spacecraft was 280,000 miles (450,000 kilometers) away, show features as small as 1.4 miles (2.2 kilometers), twice the resolution of the single-image view taken on July 13 [2015].


The north polar region is at top, with bright Tombaugh Regio to the lower right of center and part of the dark Cthulhu Regio at lower left. Part of the dark Krun Regio is also visible at extreme lower right.

The original NASA image has been modified by doubling the linear pixel density and cropping.
