What is fascinating about Pluto is how young its surface is. We
can see some canyons, planes, and mountains in this image - which is an
indication of a young surface. This image of Pluto was taken when the New Horizons spacecraft
was only 280,000 miles away from the surface. In the image you can see features as
small as 1.4 miles! Four images from New Horizons’ Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI)
were combined with color data from the Ralph instrument to create this
enhanced color global view.
