A Day on Pluto and Charon

A Day on Pluto and Charon

The best available images taken during New Horizons’ flyby of the Pluto system were combined to create these unique views of Pluto (left) and its largest Moon Charon (right).

Using images taken of every side (except the south pole), these views reveal what a full rotation of the dwarf planet and moon would look like.
