New Horizons’ Best View of Pluto

Postby Stany Buyle » Sat 5 Dec 2015 17:35

From the NASA website:
New Horizons’ Best View of Pluto’s Craters, Mountains and Icy Plains
This movie is composed of the sharpest views of Pluto that NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft obtained during its flyby on July 14, 2015. The pictures are part of a sequence taken near New Horizons’ closest approach to Pluto, with resolutions of about 250-280 feet (77-85 meters) per pixel – revealing features smaller than half a city block on Pluto’s diverse surface. The images include a wide variety of cratered, mountainous and glacial terrains – giving scientists and the public alike a super-high resolution view of Pluto’s complexity.

kindest regards,

I like better one good shot in a day than 10 bad ones in a second...
