Pluto's hazes
Pluto's hazes Just seven hours after closest approach, New Horizons looked back and captured this spectacular image of Pluto’s atmosphere, backlit by the sun. The image reveals layers of haze that are several times higher than scientists predicted. The image was taken at 19:06 on July 14, 2015, from a distance of about 370,000 kilometers. Three images have been deconvolved, stacked, and enlarged to make this photo. NASA / JHUAPL / SwRI
