Color Pic of Pluto & Charon

Hey Space Placers!

Here is a historic pic of far flung dwarf planet Pluto and its biggest moon Charon. It was taken at a distance of 71 million miles on 4/9/15 by the New Horizons spacecraft which is enroute to a flyby of the Pluto system on July 14, 2015.

The best news is that the view is only going to get BETTER as New Horizons gets closer! I can hardly wait.
