More Photos of Pluto Incoming from NASA’s New Horizons

The data and images from the New Horizons Pluto flyby are still coming in. NASA  released some more photos today–and these are impressively detailed. The first one is a beautiful 1000 mile wide mosaic featuring the Sputnik Planum and some of the surrounding features. The second two are the more close-up single photos.
