Three views of Pluto, May 8-12, 2015

Three views of Pluto, May 8-12, 2015
Three views of Pluto, May 8-12, 2015 New Horizons took these three photos of Pluto on May 8, 10, and 12, 2015, from distances of 80, 77, and 75 million kilometers, respectively. At those distances, the LORRI camera achieves about 6 pixels across Pluto's disk. These images have been enlarged by a factor of four and deconvolved. Deconvolution sharpens the original images to enhance features on Pluto but can occasionally add "false" details, so features seen here will need to be confirmed with later images taken from closer distances.
