NASA shares this incredible rainbow-coloured image of Pluto
Pluto is shown in a rainbow of colors that distinguish the different regions on the planet
NASA, in a recent post, shared a stunning rainbow-coloured image of Pluto that has set the internet on fire.
In a post on Instagram, NASA said, "Pluto isn't really a psychedelic riot of colors this translated color image was created by New Horizons scientists to highlight the many subtle color differences between the planet's distinct regions."
Pluto has a complex, varied surface with jumbled mountains reminiscent of Europa, networks of carved-out valleys, old, heavily cratered terrain sitting right next to new, smooth icy plains, and even what might be wind-blown dunes.
Pluto is shown in a rainbow of colors that distinguish the different regions on the planet.
The left side of the planet is mostly blue-green with purple swirls, while the right side ranges from a vibrant yellow-green at the top to a reddish orange toward the bottom, NASA said in the post.
