Start the Week Flying…Over a Moon for a Cosmic Perspective


(Video link here.NASA recently released beautiful enhanced color images of Pluto‘s largest moon Charon taking during the New Horizon mission’s approach to the Pluto system last July.

They used the images create this astonishing flyover video of Charon. It definitely gives us an expanded view…

The “flight” starts with the informally named Mordor (dark) region near Charon’s north pole. The camera then moves south to a vast chasm, descending from 1,100 miles to just 40 miles above the surface to fly through the canyon system. From there it’s a turn to the south to view the plains and “moat mountain,” informally named Kubrick Mons, a prominent peak surrounded by a topographic depression.
