NASA's New Horizons team has just released a trippy new Pluto image showing the icy dwarf planet ablaze in fall-like colors. This striking photo was taken during New Horizons' historic July 14 flyby at a range of 22,000 miles using the spacecraft’s Ralph/MVIC color camera. New Horizons scientists created this far-out, false-color photo using a technique called principal component analysis to highlight the many subtle color differences between Pluto's distinct elevations and regions.
Have a look and tell us if you're sufficiently stunned by this psychedelic shot.
