New Horizons update: Resolving features on Charon and seeing in color

Emily Lakdawalla • June 23, 2015 • 13

Only about three weeks remain until the flyby — it's getting really close! I almost don't want the anticipation to end. New Horizons is now getting color images and is seeing features on Charon. Deep searches have yielded no new moons.

Daniel Macháček • February 13, 2014 • 7

Cassini flew past Phoebe on June 11, 2004, on its way to entering Saturn orbit. The flyby was almost perfect but overexposure of some images have prevented color mosaics from being produced.
