New Horizons begins to resolve Pluto and Charon in color New Horizons' Ralph Multicolor Visible Imaging Camera, or MVIC, took the photos for this animation of Pluto and Charon from May 29 to June 3, approaching from 55 to 49 million kilometers' distance. Images taken through infrared, red, and blue filters were combined to make these images. MVIC has about 5 times lower resolution than the LORRI camera. NASA / JHUAPL / SwRI
