Any ideas on what we're seeing here?

Attached Image


I'm guessing internal reflections in the instrument (Charon can't be that bright).

Extremely long exposure of a narrow illuminated crescent of each body, probably looking for rings around Pluto. Probably! The long buildup of signal in the crescent pixels results in the bleed out across the image.

ADMIN NOTE: Moved Charon posts to the Charon Surface Observations thread, moved new Nix image to the Pluto Small Moons thread.

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.

Thanks, everyone, for posting the MVIC images, including the satellite pics that were moved to other threads.

I knew the goods were out there somewhere. smile.gif

IIRC there was a Charonshine image taken by the MVIC.

James Tuttle Keane ‏@jtuttlekeane

Jeff Moore- bladed terrain on Pluto: only found at >2km elevation—where CH4 prefers to condense. #AGU16

Bill McKinnon- Pluto should have remnant rotational bulge (from when P~40 hrs) as a result of tidal de-spinning. No detection yet. #AGU16

John Spencer- altitude is an important control of color at the poles of Pluto. Relatedly, geomorphic evidence for katabatic winds? #AGU16

Brandon Johnson @brcjohns - topography and (inferred) gravity anomaly of Sputnik Planitia is best matched if Pluto has thick ocean. #AGU16

Oliver White- change in morphology across Sputnik Planitia: differential N2 sublimation/deposition, convection, and/or glacial flow? #AGU16

Bladed terrain on Pluto appears to be ice towers and ice ridges that jut up a third of a mile....


Penitentes as the origin of the bladed terrain of Tartarus Dorsa on Pluto
