Psychedelic Pluto


New Horizons scientists made this false color image of Pluto using a technique called principal component analysis to highlight the many subtle color differences between Pluto's distinct regions. The image data were collected by the spacecraft’s Ralph/MVIC color camera on July 14 at 11:11 AM UTC, from a range of 22,000 miles (35,000 kilometers). This image was presented by Will Grundy of the New Horizons’ surface composition team on Nov. 9 at the Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in National Harbor, Maryland.




So check it out. NASA just released this false color picture of Pluto to highlight all the color differences on the planet. APPARENTLY the dwarf-planet was secretly a hippie. Check out that deadbeat planet! No wonder it couldn't muster up the mass to become a full blown planet. It was probably sneaking off to go smoke pot in the bathroom while all the other planets where busy collecting mass. Lol jk. Cool picture though.

If all planets looked like this more students would be interested in them. Like some kind of mix-flavored ice cream cone.

I like it because it adds some depth to those bland grey looking pictures we always get of Pluto.

It is almost like if it had a "Band Structure" and chakras.

I'm still wondering what it would actually look like out the window of a spaceship parked about that far out in orbit. It's pretty far from the sun, so it should be pretty dark, and without a lot of color. Still, against the black of space, it might stand out pretty brightly, like our own moon.

Pluto is approximately as bright as a winter landscape on Earth a little while before the sunrise or after sunset (called "Pluto hour").



Pluto is reddish in colour, due to tholins covering it. Here's an approximately true-colour image:
