This simulated view of Pluto includes data from the July 14 flyby downlinked as of September 7. Frames from a high-resolution mosaic are superimposed on a lower-resolution global view and projected as they would appear from a vantage point 1800 kilometers above Pluto. The entire area is about 1800 kilometers across.
Pluto's diverse terrain (mosaic with detail images)
A mosaic of images captured as New Horizons flew past Pluto on July 14 contains a wide variety of different kinds of terrain, from smooth, geologically fresh icy plains, to ancient, dark, cratered highlands. This version of New Horizons' second-highest-resolution Pluto mosaic was generated from data downlinked from September 5 to 7, 2015. It is a wider version of this mosaic released during the flyby.
