NASA's Stunning Images of Pluto Make the Planetoid Feel Closer

In addition to NASA's recent announcement surrounding water on Mars, the space agency has also released new images of Pluto.

These extremely vivid and detailed photographs of the dwarf planet show Pluto like we have never seen before. To achieve such stunning images, a Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC) was used on the New Horizons Space Probe. This past summer, the space probe made history by coming 7,800 miles away from Pluto, the closest it has ever been.

The images released are in a variety of compositions, including mostly black and white images, with few colored ones. The collection shows images of Pluto zoomed-in as well as portrait shots of the planet. The colored images show rich dark reds and blues on the planet. The black and white images depict the planet's unique textural quality.
