New views of Pluto
Maps of Pluto generated from Hubble ACS images gathered over 2002 and 2003 show a curious pattern of bright and dark spots across its surface, superimposed on a more neutral and bright color covering the northern hemisphere (where it was currently spring) and darker and more variegated color near the equator.

Most NASA images are in the public domain. Reuse of this image is governed by NASA's image use policy.
