Images of Pluto reveal this

Posted by on Saturday, September 19, 2015

The New Horizons spacecraft has sent back some amazing images of Pluto. Images of foggy weather and frosty glaciers.

There are also possible dunes and jumbled mountains.

The images would suggest that weather changes daily on Pluto much as it does on Earth.

Pluto is a dwarf planet. It was discovered on 18 February 1930 and has a surface area of 1.77×107 km2.

New Horizons spacecraft was launched about ten years ago on January 19, 2006 to collect data about the dwarf planet.
