This thread is for discussion of NH Pluto surface observations received after 10 Oct 2015.


--------------------
A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Good morning,
What's the most realistic color image of Pluto as appears to the human eye?..Many ThanKS
edit: I have a Questions..
the diagram score (P.H.Index) of Pluto is 22% complete..
as it would be the diagram score of Pluto today after New Horizon images?

This post that I wrote in the previous thread might give you an answer:

http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&p=227266

There is a true color image with data from RALPH and the higher resolution mosaics colorized using lower resolution true-color data by a kind amateur:

http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&p=227266

It is beautful, the 8K mosaic is now my desktop background. Official RALPH + MVIC hi-res mosaic will come later.

Edit: Added more to the list 5 minutes later. Guess they weren't done yet. tongue.gif
Edit 2: Added 5 more that were published a half hour later.

I would not have expected this pattern within the dark streaks:

LORRI site is slow, it must be getting mobbed.

ETA: Sublimation pits and crevasses?

Here's the version I made. This also includes the images from P_MPAN that were downlinked earlier this month.

Before today's LORRI release I was starting to think that Pluto couldn't get much more weird-looking than it already was - it already looked strange enough. I love to admit that I was wrong.

I assume the blank/noisy LORRI image releases from 11:22:02 to 11:22:36 are part of the high-res strip. Are they a portion taken beyond Pluto's limb, or is something else going on?

Wow. Amazing pattern. My first take was mounds, but checking the lighting elsewhere in the picture, you're right, those are pits. But that pattern.. just wow.

How big are those pits?

More confirmation that the level of pitting in the "convection cells" appears to be higher near the edges than in the middle, backing up the convection concept (as the edges would be the oldest).

Just wow.

I can understand regularly spaced pits and rows of pits, but how in the world can there be pits occurring in pairs?

I was wondering that too. I thought maybe they were the images they were going to take on the dark side 'by Charon-light'. However it looks like there are stars. Maybe images taken to search for more moons?

These images may have been taken to ensure that Pluto's limb is covered in case of inaccurate pointing and/or slightly different flyby geometry from what was planned.
