The Latest New Horizons Imagery Allows You To See Pluto Like Never Before!
This new video shows Charon orbiting Pluto. It is really cool to see just how close these two bodies are.

Quoting Alan Stern:

"The image sequence showing Charon revolving around Pluto set a record for close-range imaging of Pluto — they were taken from 10 times closer to the planet than the Earth is,"

Rarely do you get to observe such an obvious barycenter.

"ALMA's observations are helping pinpoint Pluto's position and path around the sun, which to this day are imperfectly known, researchers said."

Yet we launched this probe over eight years ago.

If only our "behaviors" could be as impressive as our "achievements".

Very interesting thanks. I think when we see Pluto and Charon they will look something like Triton.

Next year will be big one for exploration. Dawn will go into orbit around Ceres, comet 67P, with Rosetta, will reach perihelion and New Horizons will do its Pluto flyby.

Well that is certainly possible, as most believe both objects are migrants from the Kuiper Belt. I too cannot wait to see the imagery from next year's fly-by.

I was surprised to learn that New Horizons will go into hibernation in two weeks. I don’t remember that being part of the original mission plan, but I could be incorrect.
