Charonís Night Side

Uploader comment: After its close approach to Pluto, the New Horizons spacecraft snapped this hauntingly beautiful image of the night side of Plutoís largest moon, Charon. Only an imager on the far side of Pluto could catch such a view, with a bright, thin sliver of Charon near the lower left illuminated by the sun.
