Pluto system family portrait (to scale with orbits)
Pluto system family portrait (to scale with orbits) The four largest bodies in the Pluto system, to scale, and at correctly scaled distances from each other: Pluto, Charon, Nix, and Hydra. The images were taken at a variety of times, from 16 to 10 hours before New Horizons' closest approach to Pluto. They have been resized to a common scale (5 km/pixel). Not pictured are Kerberos and Styx; images of those moons of comparable quality have not yet been returned by New Horizons. NASA / JPL / JHUAPL / SwRI / Emily Lakdawalla
