I just saw the latest Pluto pic and it's amazing!!!!! Another reddish planet!

They are now waiting to see if New Horizon has survived being so close to the dwarf planet, the spacecraft should send a signal again Wednesday 2am Uk time.. fingers crossed it's fine!!

Yep. And it takes 4 hours for the signal to get back here travelling at the speed of light! Shocked  That's how far away Pluto is from us.

Quite the artist Roggie!
