Pluto's Icy Plains Captured in Highest-Resolution Views from New Horizons

Uploader comment: NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft continues to transmit the sharpest views of Pluto that it obtained (and recorded) during its flyby of the distant planet on July 14, 2015. The newest image, returned on December 24, 2015, extends New Horizons’ highest-resolution swath of Pluto to the very center of the informally named Sputnik Planum, and nearly completes the set of highest-resolution images taken by New Horizons last July.
