Swath across Charon
Swath across Charon This is a mosaic of four images captured by New Horizons' Long-Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) while the LEISA spectrometer was examining the color of Charon's surface. It has been rotated to place north approximately up. Charon's terrain is surprisingly diverse for such a relatively small world located so distant from the Sun.
