Pluto in full view.

This week NASA's New Horizon space craft had it's closest encounter with the dwarf planet Pluto yet. The space craft is now beyond Pluto and headed out to rendezvous with other Kuiper Belt objects. The images of this fly by will probably be the best images of the far off planet that we will see in our life time. The images show close ups of the surface of Pluto and we can make out geological features such as individual mountains. You can see more images here and here. More images should be posted in the coming days.
