PLUTÓN EN IMÁGENES Y ALGO MAS

En comparación con la tierra
This graphic presents a view of Pluto and Charon as they would appear if placed slightly above Earth's surface and viewed from a great distance. Recent measurements obtained by New Horizons indicate that Pluto has a diameter of 2370 km, 18.5% that of Earth's, while Charon has a diameter of 1208 km, 9.5% that of Earth's.

Caronte. Una depresión con un pico en el medio, que se muestra en la esquina superior izquierda de la imagen insertada a la derecha. Tiene un fractura generalizada y una superficie rejuvenecida.

muestran patrones intrincados pero desconcertantes de las crestas de color gris azulado y material rojizo entre medio.
An extended colour image of Pluto taken by Nasa’s New Horizons spacecraft, rounded and bizarrely textured mountains, informally named the Tartarus Dorsa, rise up along Pluto’s day-night terminator and show intricate but puzzling patterns of blue-gray ridges and reddish material inbetween. This view, roughly 330 miles (530 kilometers) across, combines blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC) on July 14, 2015, and resolves details and colours on scales as small as 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers).
