Farewell Pluto

Farewell-Pluto-800

The New Horizons spacecraft has flown past Pluto and it’s moons. Oriented so that it’s instruments capture data as the system of moons and Pluto become silhouetted by the sun. There is a subtle glow as Pluto looses it’s nitrogen atmosphere to the solar wind. This image created with Lightwave, Sculptris, Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop.
