The only thing we can say for certain about Pluto at this time, is that there's a long-snouted elk on its surface.

But there are other interpretations out there as well...

There is an interesting piece on Pluto by Moonlight that was released just before the picture. It has a cool artistic image of Charon shining over the Plutonian surface.

"Charon, although three billion miles from the sun, is so close to Pluto and so ice-covered that it would be only five times dimmer than the full moon seen from Earth."

To me, this picture of Pluto looks like a cheesy painting of a planet from the cover of a 1950s pulp sci-fi novel. So I made this. Apologies; resume science.

Looks like da Vinci was leaving a clue that he was even more ahead of his time than we give him credit for!
I always thought Pluto was enigmatic.
Dan Brown is probably sharpening his pencil as we speak!

I usually have a cup of coffee while perusing the UMSF Pluto (and other) news.
This was a two cup day! I'd better switch to decaf for the flyby! laugh.gif

Ramblings...

When I was born there were no satellites in orbit.
And then I remember Sputnik, and then Explorer, Gargarin, then Mercury, Pioneer, Echo (I saw Echo 2 sail over my backyard in a pre-dawn morning with my Dad), Telstar, Ranger, Gemini, Mariner, Surveyor, Apollo, Skylab, Viking, MIR, Voyager, the Shuttle, Galileo, Cassini, the ISS, and all the rest. In my lifetime we have surveyed the whole Solar System. And now Pluto. I saw it as it happened... in real time, and not as history... from newspapers, TV and radio, space magazines, a bunch of ham radio guys (like Dad), with my own eyes, and now with the Internet. WOW. It reminds me in a way of the discovery of a new and gigantic continental mass stretching from almost pole to pole in the 1500's . What will ever happen next?

"By the time New Horizons reached Pluto, it turned into a dwarf planet."
"Damn.... they told me not to buy cheap tickets...."
