Although it may seem more impressive if you wear 3D glasses, this is the first 3D image of the Ultima Thule Kuiper Belt thing. New Horizons was started by Ultima Thule on January 1.
This is the first image of Ultima Thule, taken at a distance of 85,000 miles from the New object Horizons spacecraft. The "red snowman" replaces the initial shape of the "bowling pin" that is thought to be. This photo shows that Ultima Thule is actually two things to join in gravity, making it the first binary contact that a spacecraft visits. The red color is because it is iradiated in the Kuiper Belt.

When NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto in July 2015, this image captures the major mountain ranges where it meets a broad cold plain called Sputnik Planitia. The ridges in these photos are now known as sand made of solid methane ice.
New Horizons capture what scientists call "bladed" land near the heart-shaped region of the dwarf planet. The 3-D image was created using two photos taken about 14 minutes apart on July 14. The first photo was taken about 16,000 miles (25,000 kilometers) from Pluto and the second was taken when the spacecraft was 10,000 miles (about 17,000 kilometers) away. Open your 3-D glasses for best viewing.
The New Horizons team discovered a chain of strange mountains covered with methane snow in Pluto. NASA launches an image of snow mountains extending across the dark expanse of Cthulhu on March 3.
NASA released a photo on February 4, 2015, what it suspects is an image of floating hills over Pluto. The hills are made of ice water and suspended on the surface of a sea of nitrogen.
This photo made in infrared light shows the water ice is plentiful over Pluto. The image was created using two Pluto scans made by the New Horizons spacecraft on July 14, when the probe is about 67,000 miles (108,000 kilometers) above Pluto.
These pictures show different Pluto textures, including what NASA calls "rounded and bizarrely textured mountains." The mountains formally called Tartarus Dorsa. This image shows about 330 miles (530 kilometers) of the Pluto land. It combines the blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph / Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera of the space probe. The pictures were taken on July 14, during the flyby of the probe. They are released on September 24.
The photos taken by the New Horizons before its closest approach to Pluto on July 14 is the clearest picture on the date of different Pluto land. This high-resolution image shows the details of two icebergs. The image covers 75 miles (120 kilometers) of the surface of Pluto.
The surface of Pluto's surface was taken just 15 minutes after the NASA's New Horizon spacecraft made the closest approach to the ice planet on July 14. While looking at it in the Sun, the spacecraft camera has taken over dozens of thin layers of thin clouds in the Pluto environment, at least 60 miles (100 km) above the surface. The photo was downlinked to Earth on September 13.
This photo of the freezing and mountainous Pluto scenes is taken from a distance of 11,000 miles (17,700 kilometers) . "This image really makes you think you're there, in Pluto, checking the landscape for yourself," says New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado.
The image is a synthesis of new images of high-resolution downlink from New Horizon. The vast plain of ice has been nicknamed the Sputnik Planum. This image comes from a view above the equatorial Pluto area. Astronomers began to downlink a data dump from space craft at Labor Day weekend, from September 5 to 7.
Scientists say that what looks like a mountain can be large block of frozen water suspended in frozen nitrogen. In new pictures, taken on July 14 and released on September 10, a pixel is 400 meters (440 yards). The closest pass of the New Horizons through Pluto has taken it about 50,000 miles from the surface.
Pluto's landscape has many types: plains, mountains, craters and what they look like sand. The smallest detail in the pictures is about half a mile wide. The place with craters is ancient, says the scientist. The smooth frozen plane is a bit young.
Prior to Pluto's closest approach on July 14, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft frustrated this picture of Charon, the largest month of Pluto. The photo was taken at a distance of 290,000 miles away. The northern part of the Charon region is dark in dark. This photo was released on September 10.
The new image of Pluto is a spectacular scientist on the planet. It shows the atmosphere of the small world, which opens in the sun. NASA said the image shows haze layers that are many times higher than predicted. The picture was taken by the New Horizons spacecraft seven hours after the closest approach to Pluto on July 14. The new Horizons are about 1.25 million miles from Pluto at that time.
Photos taken by The shape of the heart shaped Pluto, not formally named Tombaugh Regio, reveals a "wide, no craterless plain that appears which is no more than 100 million years old, "according to NASA on July 17. The" frozen region "is still possible in the form of a geologic process. NASA's New Horizons spacecraft was launched in 2006 and traveled 3 billion miles to the dwarf planet.
Pictures near a region near the Equator of Pluto revealed a giant surprise: a set of youth mountains. NASA released the image on July 15.
Wonderful new details of Pluto's largest month, Charon, was announced in this photo released on July 15.  New Horizons explores Pluto, Ultima Thule
The latest spectral analysis of the New Horizons & # 39; Ralph instrument was released on July 15. It shows an abundance of methane ice, but with remarkable difference from place to place throughout the fixed surface of Pluto.
NASA team members and visitors count down on Pluto's spacecraft approach on July 14.
The image of Pluto is captured by New Horizons on July 13, about 16 hours before the closest approach. The spacecraft is 476,000 miles from the surface of Pluto.
The colors in this picture of Pluto and Charon have been exaggerated to make it easy to see their various features. (These are not the actual colors of Pluto and Charon, and the two bodies are not really close together in space.) This picture was created on July 13, one day before New Horizons made the closest strategy in Pluto.  The New Horizons explains Pluto, Ultima Thule
This picture of Pluto was acquired by the New Horizons on July 12. The spacecraft was 1.6 million miles from Pluto at that time.
