The Rich Color Variations of Pluto

Sept. 24, 2015 The Rich Color Variations of Pluto - NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured this high-resolution enhanced color view of Pluto on July 14, 2015. The image combines blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC). Pluto’s surface sports a remarkable range of subtle colors, enhanced in this view to a rainbow of pale blues, yellows, oranges, and deep reds. Many landforms have their own distinct colors, telling a complex geological...

Planetary Nebula Abell 39 - in enhanced color. This is one of the most perfect planetary nebulae -- and with a diameter of 6 light years it's by any means the largest spherical object in our galaxy.

Long ago, in the largest canyon system in our solar system, vibrations from "marsquakes" shook soft sediments that had accumulated in Martian lakes. The shaken sediments formed features that now appear as a series of low hills apparent in a geological map based on new NASA images.
